Top Architectural Styles-CLASSICAL/GREEK REVIVAL

Beautifully nspired by the temples and public buildings of ancient Greece, Greek Revival was a movement in Europe and North America dating from the nineteenth century and featuring an even number of grand columns with an entablature above. Greek Revival homes are generally painted white in order to mimic the white marble of the originals.The style became popular because of the early American connection between their own democracy and their democratic roots in ancient Greece.
Although the style is common in public buildings in many areas along the east coast, many of the Greek Revival-style residences that survive are located in the southeastern United States.
