New England proportion on this Southern Greek Revival, circa 1850. And a belvedere! Perched high upon a hill, the gracious home has three front entrances and, presumably, a cross-axial plan. #greekrevival #greensboro #georgia #belvedere #sreeddesign #interiordesign #architecture #historicpreservation #restoration #savingoldhouses

Interiors are progressing well in the new Greek Revival estate we are finishing up in Mississippi. All doors, moldings, stair, hardware, etc. are historically accurate. #kentate #classicalarchitecture #traditionalhouse #instaarchitecture #greekrevival

The Presbyterian Manse
211 Delta St., Jefferson, TX.
Built 1839, this is considered the oldest home in Jefferson, the Manse is one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture. The early structure faced Alley street and was built by Charles G. Peel as his family residence. It was a one-story frame house covered by clapboard, elevated above ground level on a brick foundation. It was said to have consisted of two rooms. The second construction occurred in 1850 extending the home to its current full size.
The main entrance has fluted Doric columns, and the opposite west side has square columns with molded capitols. Another typical period feature is the double front door with sidelights on both sides and a transom light above. This allows natural light into the home while the portico roof shades the glass from the strong summer sun.
In 1856, the property was sold to Gen. James Harrison Rogers, a prominent lawyer in Jefferson. The house was acquired by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in 1903 for use as their Manse (home for the church pastor), and it served in that capacity for 50 years.
Well-documented during the 1936 Historic American Building Survey (HABS), the home is documented in the Library of Congress.

We are getting really good at removing wallpaper! I have lots of techniques to share - stay tuned! And look how cute this vintage wallpaper is - but it still has to go. #oldhouse #oldhouselove #greekrevival #sweatequity

The Scotia Museum Building with Redwood trunks for columns is built clearly with the influence of "Greek Revival" style architecture. Just standing in front of it under its gable with pediment reminds you of Greece ๐Ÿ’™

Kicking off our Rhody Awards visits with this Pawtuxet Village gem in Warwick. Once the headquarters for 19th century state fairs, this prominent building now features efficiency and one-room units that are now a safe haven for homeless and disabled individuals - thanks to House of Hope CDC! Do you know the name of this award-winning property?

"Yet the story of Orpheus, it occurs to me, is not just about the desire of the living to resuscitate the dead but about the ways in which the dead drag us along into their shadowy realm because we cannot let them go. So we follow them into the Underworld, descending, descending, until one day we turn and make our way back"-Meghan O'Rourke #orpheus statue by Thomas Crawford 1843 @mfaboston #statue #sculpture #greif #greek #greekmythology #mythology #death #loss #inspirationalquotes #inspire #healing #growth #Cerberus #hades #afterlife #plaster #art #americanart #greekrevival #crawford #museum #mfa #boston

SUMMERTIME. Finland is experiencing its worst summer in decades, but Robotopp, being Dutch, hardened by the icy North Sea winds, feels like in his element. The building you see on the first three fotos (just swipe), is the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I guess the Fins have a saying: "My Foreign Office is my Greek temple." The fourth foto is showing the icebreakers that are docked in front of the Ministry, waiting for winter to come, so they can keep the route to Tallinn in Estonia open. You can see both the mighty Voima (Power) and Sisu (Perseverance). All this can be seen on the Helsinki district (and island) Katajanokka. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ›ณโš“๏ธโ›ด#finland #suomi #iphone #nofilter #nordicstyle #nordicliving #helsinki #igersfinland #ig_finland #visitfinland #nordicart #architecture from #around1800 #katajanokka #laivastokatu #temple #templearchitecture #classicisme #classicism #greekrevival #icebreaker #ijsbreker #sisu #voima #buza #foreignoffice #ministryofforeignaffairs #summertime #winteriscoming

Faking it. A charming and small Greek revival hall, now used as a gallery, tucks itself away in a side street of Ballarat central. Made entirely of handmade red bricks, the building's front has a mask of rendered cement and applied pre-moulded decoration. This method of cheaply imitating carved stone was by no means a Victorian invention, most Roman buildings also applied the same method of construction two millennia ago. .

We took a quick trip to Palmyra, Virginia this morning to renew our passports because there was such a long wait in Charlottesville. It was a beautiful day for a walk through this quaint historic town. In the center, up on a knoll is this beautifully detailed Greek Revival courthouse, known as, "The Acropolis of Fluvanna". It's a gem! (ca. 1830) #historicarchitecture #ilovegreekrevival#greekrevival #virginiahistory #ilovevirginiaโžก๏ธ

7.25.17 Lunchtime #drawing: Two windows on a Greek Revival building, the big thing in architecture after the Federal Style in Greenwich Village, from 1837 at 37 Bank Street. I'm totally walking around with the AIA Guide to New York for new insights and to pepper in some history in this drawing-a-day project that's been going non-stop for 3 1/2 years.
