At the turn of the century bungalows took America by storm. These small houses, some costing as little as $900, helped fulfill many Americans wishes for their own home, equipped with all the latest conveniences. Central to the bungalows popularity was the idea that simplicity and artistry could harmonize in one affordable house.
Almost inevitably, this economical, practical type of house invaded North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The first American house actually called a bungalow was designed in 1879 by William Gibbons Preston. Contrary to the usual definition, it was a two-story house built at Monument Beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It was probably called a bungalow because it resembled resort architecture.
The term originated in the Indian subcontinent, deriving from the Hindi word (baṅgala), meaning Bengali and used elliptically for a house in the Bengal style. This Asian architectural form and design originated in the countryside of Bengal region in the Indian subcontinent. Such houses were traditionally small, of one story and detached, and had a wide veranda.
