Talladega Queen Anne Classic

A classic Queen Anne style house in Talladega, Alabama.

The Queen Anne style often featured complex roof forms with multiple gables and dormers projecting from a main hipped roof, as on this example. Other common features can include wrap around porches, elaborate trim, and ornamental chimney tops.

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.

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

Signed and personalized copies of the award-winning and bestselling 720-page hardcover book are available from the author in our shop, YourHistoricHouse.com/shop/.
