An Historic American Building
The Georgian Revival style was an updated version of the original Colonial Georgian house and was popular on the East Coast in the late 1890s. Georgian Revival architecture is characterized by Palladian windows, Flemish bond brickwork, classical columns and pilasters, and simple rectilinear plans and elevations.
In 2001, 1545 Divisadero Street was sold to the Bernard Osher Foundation which later donated the building to the University of California.
