Spectacular Stick Style Dormer

This 1870s Stick Style house has a lot of great trim elements, including this spectacular Stick Style dormer window. It illustrates well the wonderfully inventive detailing that can be found on these houses.

The Stick Style shares many features with the Queen Anne style and can be considered a variation of that style. They both emerged from the English Queen Anne style in the 1870s. The style was named by noted architectural historian Vincent Scully, who traced its development in his influential 1955 book, “The Shingle Style and the Stick Style.” The book is still in print and well worth owning if you have an interest understanding in Victorian era architecture.

Stick Style is one of 25 styles and types illustrated in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.
