Mississippi Department of Heritage Trust. So, in the absence of any confirming information, here is my first stab at critical thinking about architecture. I am counting on MissPres for the usual educational feedback.
That is the depth of my assessment as of now. I did, however, learn some new terms that I did not previously know. It's not hard to see a column and know it is a column, and not too difficult (I think, anyway) to discern Doric from Ionic. I can tell the difference between a dome and a cupola; this building has a dome.
Here are the new things I learned:
Architrave: the support that runs from column to column and rests on the capitals of the columns
Frieze: the molded strip above the architrave; it may or may not be ornamental
Cornice: the projection below the pediment
Pediment: the triangular section above the entablature
