History of 744 Westwood Georgian Revival

744 Westwood was built in 1960 by Frances and Lou Crenshaw. From the time the home was completed, it provided a "gathering spot" for numerous Marlin functions. Parties for the garden club, various bridge club groups, as well as other social events were held at this home on a regular basis. Their daughter, Cindy and husband Steve Chapman, celebrated their wedding with a reception in 1967 which was held in the back yard of this home - complete with a champagne fountain and band. In particular, there were lots of parties for deer hunters, as well as poker games, card games and dominoes.

Dr. & Mrs. Richard W. Jenkins, Jr. purchased the home in 2004. Many renovations and updates were made from December, 2004 - April, 2005 to reflect their decorative preferences as well as their lifestyle. Architecturally, the home is classified as Georgian Revival based on the combined influence of 1690 - 1830 Georgian Colonial homes and 1825 - 1860 Greek Revival styles. Spacious and comfortable, Georgian Colonial architecture reflected the rising ambition of a young country. The symmetrical, orderly Georgian style became prominent in Colonial America, particularly in New England and the Southern Colonies during the 1700's. These homes imitated the larger more elaborate Georgian homes which were being built in England.

Greek Revival style architecture features classical details reminiscent of the Parthenon with stately, pillared homes that reflect a passion for antiquity. In the mid-19th century, many Americans believed that ancient Greece represented the spirit of democracy, thus interest in British styles waned during the War of 1812 and Americans sympathized with Greece's own struggles for independence in the 1820's. Colonnaded Greek Revival mansions, sometimes called Southern Colonial homes, sprang up throughout the American South and became the most predominant housing style in the U.S.

The Jenkins' home truly epitomizes a combination of Georgian Colonial and Greek Revival, thus embracing the category of Georgian Revial Architecture.
