Arlington House: Examples of Greek Revival Architecture

Arlington House, the home of Robert E. Lee and his family for 30 years, located in Arlington, Va., was designed by English architect George Hadfield. The home was one of the earliest Greek Revival structures and one of the first to use the "Colossal Orders," or the row of massive columns that span the home's two stories. The home's imposing portico is 60 feet across by 25 feet deep and features eight Doric columns -- six on the front and two on the sides.
