Antebellum Architecture in the Southern US

Quote:
Antebellum architecture is the neoclassical architectural style characteristic of the Southern United States, especially the Old South, from after the birth of the United States in the American Revolution, to the start of the American Civil War. Antebellum architecture is especially characterized by neoclassical and Greek revival style plantation houses and mansions.

Gaineswood in Demopolis, AL is stunning! One day I would love to visit. I wonder if it's a private home or museum. Also, I hear Savannah is awesome!

There's actually several antebellum homes around Demopolis.

Here's another one, Bluff Hall, built 1840
