Greek Revival Bartow-Pell Mansion’s Empire Furnishings

Bartow-Pell Mansion

A triumph of American spirit and creativity, the Bartow-Pell Mansion is one of the best preserved Greek Revival structures in America. It remains a country estate; open to the public, complete with surrounding parklands and gardens, which enhance the pleasures of the visitors’ experience.

Influenced by Minard Lafever (1797-1854), one of the most talented American designers of his time (he published three books of architecture, The Young Builder’s General Instructor, 1829; The Modern Builder’s Guide, 1833; and The Beauties of Modern Architecture, 1835.), the house is characterized by bold modifications of the classical Greek precedent.
