Greek Revival Coleman-Banks House Puzzle

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!

Greek Revival Coleman-Banks House

The c. 1845 Greek Revival style Coleman-Banks House in Eutaw, AL, was built for George and Mary Ann Shauver. He was the proprietor of a local hotel. 1857 it was sold to the Coleman-Banks family and remained with them until 1968. It is operated as a museum by the Greene County Historical Society.

Long recognized as symbols of Southern culture, the historic houses of the plantation south are also monuments to the fine craftsmanship and labor of the often-enslaved carpenters who built them and the other enslaved people whose labor paid for these beautiful buildings. In recent years, substantial research has documented the skilled labor of enslaved craftsmen working in building construction in the American South.

Understanding the style of a house is the first step in planning a rehabilitation that prioritizes elements to be preserved or restored, and guides changes necessary to make the house serve 21st-century lives.
Visiting historic house museums is a wonderful way to get inspiration for your home restoration projects. Restoration methods and materials used by museums are included among the approaches presented in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
