Characteristics of Greek Revival architecture
Greek Revival was an architectural movement that took place in Northern Europe and the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries. This style of architecture revealed itself in homes featuring a number of characteristics including: Materials used were primarily stucco and wood; homes were usually painted white to resemble the white marble used in public buildings; the use of columns and pilaster built of wood. Classically columns were round but Greek Revival also included square and octagonal columns, often without bases; details were bold, but moldings were simple; low-pitched gable and hip roofs were common; elaborate door surrounds.
