I have seen versions of this Queen Anne style house with its projecting central bay window that extends up into a tower with open porch from Maine to Pennsylvania, which suggests the design may come from a 19th century house pattern book. This example is in York, PA.
The Queen Anne Style was developed in England and made its way to American in the 1870’s. Initially used for grand mansions, it was eventually used for everything from millworker cottages to middle-class homes like the one illustrated. Many books of house designs were published after the Civil War and spread popular styles across the country.
