Prosperous Americans in the mid-19th century thought ancient Greece represented the spirit of democracy. American’s interest in British styles tapered and soon a Greek revival occurred. Columned Greek Revival style house designs soon sprang up in the South, sometimes called Southern Colonial houses. With simple lines, a symmetrical shape and simple moldings, these house plans became one of the most popular. Other features of this style include a gable roof and square or rounded columns. Thomas Jefferson popularized this architectural style because of his support of the Greek democratic ideal. He even built the Virginia State Capitol building in this style in 1785.
