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 mansions soon sprang up in the South, sometimes called Southern Colonial houses. With simple lines, a symmetrical shape and simple moldings, Greek Revival house plans became one of the most popular. Other features of Greek Revival style homes include a gable roof and square or rounded columns. Thomas Jefferson popularized Greek revival style homes because of his support of the Greek democratic ideal. He even built the Virginia State Capitol building in this style in 1785.
