An Owego, NY Second Empire style house for Mansard Monday.

The defining feature of a Second Empire style building is the Mansard roof. Typically called a French roof in the U.S. during the 19th century, it was popular during a period when all things French (including the language) were "en vogue" for fashionable middle- and upper-class Americans. From the eave line down, Second Empire buildings are essential Italianate in style, but their roof gives them a different identity.

Many Mansard roofs are clad in slate shingles, sometimes arranged into patterns in several colors. Wood shingle was also used, often shaped and painted or stained in several colors. This house has asphalt shingles shaped to somewhat resemble patterned slate. This can be an acceptable option when the budget won't allow the installation of slate or wood.

Second Empire is one of 25 styles and types described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of "Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners" with other examples of the style spread across the USA. Homes from 22 states are included.

Signed and personalized copies of the award-winning and bestselling 720-page hardcover book are available from the author at YourHistoricHouse.com/shop/ and through the shop on this page.

Our shop also carries select preservation and restoration titles by other authors. Save with our multi-book combo packs!

The aim of this page is to help build broad consensus, general agreement that contributes to the formation of a national black agenda. Our goal is to use surveys, pollings and statistics to help inform those doing this work. We believe we must organize and build alliances with like minded individuals who support the need for a black agenda, through sharing information, historical research, and civil discourse now.
