Lancaster Museum of Art (C. B. Grubb House)
Ironmaster of Mount Hope Furnace Clement Grubb commissioned this superb Greek Revival house that is one of the first instances in Lancaster of the shift in fashion from the Georgian-based styles of the eighteenth century. Most notable are the Doric (in contrast to the customary Roman Tuscan) columns of the front porch that indicate a builder using Stewart and Revett's Antiquities of Athens (1762) rather than the old pattern books.
