Architectural Style – Victorian Queen Anne

The Victorian Queen Anne style became an architectural fashion in the 1880s and 1890s.  The industrial revolution brought new technologies that enabled builders to use pre-cut exterior trim that had been mass produced to create whimsical looking houses. Victorian Queen Anne homes often have round or square towers, turrets, wrap-around porches, and other fanciful details. Queen Anne houses may also have a steep roof, front facing gables, an asymmetrical shape, bay windows, and ornamental spindles and brackets.  The house shown below is an excellent example of Victorian Queen Anne style architecture. There are many houses built in this style for sale in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis.
