History of the Cape Cod

The Cape Cod dream home made its American debut in the early 18th century and is characterized by its sloped roof, symmetrical design, shingles, dormers, and ornate window shutters. Favored in colder climates with lots of snow, this classic New England-style home was modeled after the half-timbered houses of England and over hundreds of years has become known for its modest one-to-one-and-a-half-story floorplan. Former Yale University President Reverend Timothy Dwight is credited with coining the term “Cape Cod.”
