Vernacular Greek Revival Cottage, Shell Bluff

Though this great little house has a slightly Victorian appearance, I believe its origins are earlier, perhaps as a vernacular Greek Revival.

    I recognize this type of house, the design of which somewhat replicates a post-Civil War architecture based on the classic Greek Revival. It’s been simplified and rather plain except for the detail at the top of the porch posts, reminiscent of columns.
