Although English villages such as Stratford-on-Avon, are the most famous examples of half-timbering, Pa. also has its share of these structures. There are two styles of Pa. half-timbering. The country-style has plastering between the exposed, "criss-crossing" studs. This style was often used on the crossroads tavern-store. In the town-style the spaces between the studs were filled with brick nogging. The Gates House in colonial York, Pa., is a prime example of the town-style.
