I was doing research on a particular house in Keokuk IA and one source says it is a Federal Clapboard.  Another source says it is Colonial Revival.

Can anybody give me an explanation of these two styles?  Are they interchangeable?   What are their similarities or differences, and do they refer to specific times in American history?

I found my answer elsewhere.  Thanks for the forum to at least ask the question.

I'm familiar mostly with the 2-story or 2.5 story New England versions.
