The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
Most often, a Greek Revival style house is defined by its temple-like pedimented gable, often prominently turned toward the street. But not every Greek Revival house has a pediment, as this wonderful Bangor, Maine duplex example built in 1836-37 shows.
Greek Revival is often called America’s first National style, with examples built across the settled areas of the country between the 1820s and 1860s. It appears on small cottages and capes, grand columned mansions, southwestern adobe houses, urban rowhouses, and double-houses like this one.
