Georgian Doorway (in Maine!)
Decorative pilasters, transom with bullseye glass, and pediment above the transom — these are Georgian hallmarks.
This photo of a Georgian era doorway could serve as a case study of the style. The decorative pilasters, transom above the door with bullseye glass, pediment above the transom with dentil work, and a paneled door produce a clean and elegant entryway to this lovely home in coastal Maine. The Georgian style was the first formal style in American architecture and was used in construction from approximately 1700 to 1800. Many thousands of Georgian houses survive today (primarily in the eastern United States) and are loved by those who appreciate historic architecture.
