Here are some wonderful examples of Greek Revival homes right my own neighborhood. Many of them are quite large but others such as the blue one in the middle are cottages just like mine. As small as they are, the "cottages" were sometimes two-family homes occupied by new immigrants that worked in local factories.

This home below was the home of Charles Valentine who owned and operated a large soap factory in Cambridgeport. He built many of the cottages in which his workers lived. Some of the "soapworkers cottages" are now on National Register of Historic Landmarks. This home won a preservation award when it was restored several years ago.






I particularly love the ones that have the floor to ceiling windows on the first floor.
