Stick Style Variation

A Queen Anne house with elements of the Stick Style. The Stick Style is a variation of the Queen Anne style. It is not unusual to find houses that have some Stick Style elements but not enough to be called a Stick Style house. This is an example of that, with evidence of the Stick Style in the panelized treatment of the bay window and the porch detailing.

The house is located in Bath, Maine but similar houses can be found in many parts of the US. Stick Style was named by noted architectural historian Vincent Scully, who traced its development in the mid-19th century in his influential 1955 book, “The Shingle Style and the Stick Style.” A pioneering work in sorting out the stylistic developments of the 1870s and 1880s, the book is still in print and well worth owning if you have an interest in Victorian era architecture.

Queen Anne and Stick Style are two of the 25 styles and types illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

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