ARCHITECURAL HISTORY

Victorian is not an architectural style it's an
era which began in 1837 when Queen Victoria
ascended the throne and ended in 1901.
This homes have a great deal of ornament-
ation, wrap-around porches, expansive bay
windows, carvings, towers and turrets:

Gothic Revival was built in the 1840's and was
one of the first residential Victorian styles.

Inspired by the country villas of northern Italy,
the Italianate style was built 1860 to 1880.

Second Empire is fashionable about the same
time, but took it's inspiration from French
architecture and it's typical mansard roof.

Stick Style was a transition between Gothic
Revival and Queen Anne and had it's popularity
from 1860 to about 1890.

Richardsonian Romanesque was a revival style
based on the French and Spanish buildings
of the 11th century, was built betweeen 1870
and 1900 characterized by stone.

Queen Anne was the most varied, and deco-
ratively rich architectural style and was built
from 1880 to circa 1910.
