Garden District Queen Anne

A Garden District Queen Anne in New Orleans.

One of America’s most famous neighborhoods, the Garden District is filled with wonderful 19th and early 20th century homes. This lovely example of the Queen Anne style with porches on three floors is a charming example from the last quarter of the 19th century.

Emerging from English Queen Anne style, American Queen Anne developed its own distinctive characteristics. The style often incorporated features like the scalloped shingle and clapboard siding, wrap-around porches with turned posts, and upper story porches seen in this example. Also typical of the style are the bay windows, dormers, and varied window shapes.

More than 50 full color photos are used to illustrate the Queen Anne style 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.

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