Wonderful Queen Anne House

A wonderful Queen Anne style house of the 1880s located in Skowhegan, Maine. The brick first floor, oriel window on the second floor, and stylized half -timbering effect at the peak of the broad gable relate this house to the English Queen Anne, while the wrap-around porch, patterned wood shingle siding, and tower with bell-cast form roof are more of the American Queen Anne style that emerged from the English version.

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 also used for everything from mansions to millworker cottages.

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

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