Vermont Queen Anne

The Queen Anne style often incorporated features like the scalloped shingle and clapboard siding, wrap-around porch with turned posts and stickwork and bead spandrels, and the second story porch over the main entrance seen in this example. Other common features can include ornamental chimney tops, complex roof forms with dormers, towers, and bay windows.

Queen Anne is one of the 25 styles and types illustrated in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners. Understanding the style of a house is the essential first step in developing a restoration plan that prioritizes the preservation and restoration of character-defining features while making changes necessary for modern life in an old house.
