At Planters’ Hall, built ca. 1834 in Vicksburg, Mississippi, you see that this handsome former hall’s entry was turned 90 degrees and placed on the gable. It does not have a prominent portico, but instead a recessed one with classical Doric columns. And look at those windows, twelve-over twelve double-hung wood!!! Truly marvelous.

Historic home in Okauchee served as an inn on a stagecoach line

Okauchee House stands long after its peers.

The antebellum Isaac Scott-Huff-Johnston Home of 1846 in Macon, Georgia, is a grand Southern Greek Revival house. Typical of its location, the house has a full-façade porch, supported by glorious fluted round columns of the Ionic order, which reflect its well-mannered and genteel pedigree. In addition, you find crescent-shaped side porches, running the width of the house and leading to a rear addition. This is a grand house.
