General Banning wanted his family to live in gracious American comfort, so he built his house in the fashion of the fine Greek Revival houses which he had seen back in Delaware. He insured that the house was grand and comfortable inside and out by filling it with elegant "Victorian" furnishings like the ones which fill the rooms today.
