Athol: Greek Revival in one of its Finest Regional Interpretations
I’m drawn to a fabulously dramatic colonnaded portico, so Athol caught my eye! This 1840s Greek Revival makes a statement and earned a place on the National Register with grand proportions and a unique twist on the T-shaped Greek Revival plan that’s unique to the region in North Carolina. Many of the details have been pulled directly from the plans of Asher Benjamin, who published an builder’s guide that played a huge role in spreading the new language of Greek Revival in the US. Athol: all around exemplary!
