Related imageJoseph Everett Chandler (December 11, 1863 – August 19, 1945) is considered a major proponent of the Colonial Revival architecture.[1]

Joseph Everett Chandler was the son of a butcher. He grew up driving carriage-loads of tourists around Plymouth to see its sites.[2]

Chandler attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) and was an apprentice of McKim, Mead & White, Charles Howard Walker, William Pretyman, Burnham and Root, and Rotch & Tilden.[2]

He is considered a pioneering designer of queer space. He designed Red Roof for A. Piatt Andrew, which inspired interior designer Henry Davis Sleeper to build his own Beauport next door.[2]

Chandler is mostly known to have overseen the restoration of the Paul Revere House and the House of Seven Gables.[3] He worked with George Warren Cole.[2]

With George Francis Dow, he conceived Pioneer Village (Salem, Massachusetts) as a means to demonstrate life in 1630.[4][5]

In 1892 he published The Colonial Architecture of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia and in 1916 The colonial house with R.M. McBride & company.[6]
