Virginia Architecture: The Jefferson Period, 1780-1830

Virginia is rich in architecture from the many varieties of styles represented in its buildings and provides an overview of architecture in America. Come explore and gain an appreciation through the instructor’s definitive research and extensive collection of photographs. The second in this series covers the Federal or Roman Revival period 1780-1830. This period explores Jefferson as an architect and the legacy he left us in the master builders he brought to Virginia who, in turn, disseminated the Jeffersonian doctrine throughout America.
