On the Road ~ Hattiesburg, Mississippi

On the Road ~ Hattiesburg, MS, Queen Anne.

Yesterday morning, I photographed his beautiful Queen Anne style house while touring the historic district in Hattiesburg, MS.

It is a beautiful example of the style with an asymmetrical composition and a variety of textures and ornamentation. Typical features of the style include a complex roof form, patterned shingle and horizontal novelty siding, a tower, a wrap-around porch with Ionic columns, and turned and scroll-cut ornament in the gables, all of which are found in this beautiful house.

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 to accommodate modern life.

More than 50 full-color photos illustrate the Queen Anne style in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
