c.1827

The original federal design of the Great House, made in 1818, was thoroughly altered in the Grecian style by 1827. The second story was eliminated for the 17’6” ceiling in the drawing and dining rooms. The use of Greek Doric columns and tripartite windows were on the cutting edge of architectural design in New York at the time.
