Grand Homes of America
Included in this collection will be historically significant homes
as well as Mansions built by some prominent American's.
Since the earliest days of the nation, the rise of wealth in the United States
brought enormous mansions, manor homes, summer homes, and family
compounds constructed by the country's most successful business people.
America's first leaders modeled their homes after the grand manors of Europe, borrowing classical principals from ancient Greece and Rome. During the Antebellum period before the Civil War, affluent plantation owners built stately Neoclassical and Greek Revival manors. Later, during America's Gilded Age, newly-rich industrialists lavished their homes architectural details drawn from a variety of styles, including Queen Anne, Beaux Arts, and Renaissance Revival.
This collection will be added to as time allows. You can see it here:
