Historical significance

A good example of the temple-form Greek Revival dwelling. It has been said that Greek Revival was the first truly American architectural design.[3] There is no more of a shining example of this style, so favored in the Antebellum South, than Orange Hall. The name originated from the sour oranges that surrounded the property. She reigns in a grandeur as you make your entrance into the historic district of St. Marys. Worthy of magazine covers and movie sets, Orange Hall holds a special place in the hearts of all St. Mary' citizens and is a beacon to history buffs who appreciate the grand beauty of this era. It is a frame building with clapboarding for siding. Other details include: two stories, gabled roof, interior chimneys, front center entrance with side lights and transom surmounted by low pedimented lintel, front tetrastyle prostyle Doric pedimented portico supported by projecting basement, rear center recessed 2-story porch.

Architectural Notes

This building of the Early Republican period is a Doric prostyle temple. The pediment is flattened and the columns are widely spaced. At the rear end is a superimposed inset protico, one porch above the other.

The brink basement storey is stuccoed and has stucco quoins of inch projection. In the basement used to be the old kitchen, now marked by its whitewashed walls, a herringbone brick floor pattern and a dutch oven. The old Dining Room was under the front portico.
