America’s First Architect

America’s First Architect

Charles Bulfinch (August 8, 1763 – April 15, 1844)
Charles Bulfinch was an early American architect, and has been regarded by many as the first native-born American to practice architecture as a profession. His works are notable for their simplicity, balance, and good taste, and as the origin of a distinctive Federal style of classical domes, columns, and ornament that dominated early 19th-century American architecture.
