Everett Chandler (December 11, 1863 – August 19, 1945) is considered a major
proponent of the Colonial Revival architecture.
Joseph Everett Chandler was the son of a butcher. He grew up driving
carriage-loads of tourists around Plymouth to see its sites.
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.
He is considered a pioneering designer of queer space. He designed Red Roof
for A. Piatt Andrew,
which inspired interior designer
Sleeper to build his own Beauport next door.
Chandler is mostly known to have overseen the restoration of the Paul
Revere House and the House of Seven Gables.

Massachusetts) as a means to demonstrate life in 1630.
