Embossed tin shingles on roofs appeared after the Civil War. The Victorian era encouraged bold statements in their architecture. As a result, the whimsical designs on metal shingles complimented that stylish period.
The tin shingle era lasted only 70 years, or to the World War I period. In the Carolinas, owners have preserved a variety of structures.
