Tampa Bay Masterpiece

In honor of today’s Super Bowl, I am posting a great historic house from each of the team’s city. This is the Tampa Bay masterpiece Queen Anne style Lamb Manor, built in 1910 in Palmetto, FL. It is a spectacular example of the style, complete with turrets and verandas. To save it from demolition, a couple bought the home for $1 in 2006 and paid about a quarter-million dollars to move it by barge across Tampa Bay to a new site in Ruskin, just south of the city of Tampa.

You can see more exterior and interior photos and read more about the history of the house and its relocation on the Realtor.com website: https://www.realtor.com/…/historic-home-moved-across…/

The most “Victorian” of the Victorian era styles, Queen Anne was used for houses ranging from cottages to substantial mansions like this one.

Queen Anne is one of the 25 styles and types described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

The 720 page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.

Signed and personalized copies are available directly from the author in the shop on this page, https://yourhistorichouse.com/shop/.

Bookstores can order copies from W.W. Norton.
