What Are Antebellum Homes?

0

Antebellum homes are estates and mansions built in the Southern United States in the years preceding the American Civil War. Associated with both the height of high-society Southern graciousness and the depths of pre-emancipation America, these homes hold a melancholy and unique place in architectural history. Antebellum homes draw from a variety of European styles and are often a spectacular mishmash of stylistic influences.
