The Victorian Romanesque Revival style was used extensively for civic, commercial, and ecclesiastical designs, and to a lesser extent for residences. In this style, semicircular door and window openings highlight brick and stone masonry walls. This superficial reference to the architecture of the medieval period is often enhanced by the use of rock-faced stone arches for entries, window headers, and sills--in otherwise smooth-surfaced masonry walls.
