Let me introduce to you the rebel of American home styles – the Victorian. When it hit the scene, it swept the nation. Unconventional, artistic, and never seen before on American soil, the Victorian style turned American home construction upside down in the mid to late 19th century.
What I love about architecture, whether colloquial dwelling or massive building, is that each style presents itself as a piece of art representing a particular era, style, or ideology. Behind all of those details lie a story and a history.
