Architecture is an important element in any historic district like the Old Orland Historic District. Knowing the different styles of architecture will help the casual visitor and the business/home owner understand the quality of development in Old Orland as well as appreciate the passage of time.
The style guide is also helpful for prospective home builders in the district. Use of this guide will help them determine the type of architectural style of the buildings they build.
New construction should not copy existing historical buildings, but rather are encouraged to reflect the size, scale and style of the historic district. For details see Historic Architectural Styles, Land Development Code
