Queen Anne

General Range

1876-1915


HISTORIC OVERVIEW OF THIS STYLE

The Queen Anne style typifies the movement to build architecturally elaborate houses in the late 19th century. Changes in building technologies and construction methods contributed to the popularity of the style. For example, more frame elements were mass-produced and could be purchased out of printed catalogs; brickmaking was standardized, reducing the amount of mortar (thus giving brick buildings a darker red color); and increasing availability of slate of varying colors provided opportunities for roof decoration. Complicated roofs were a common feature of the Queen Anne style, including towers, cross-gables, L-shaped houses, octagonal bays that rose to the attic level, and decorative dormers and chimneys. Wall decoration continued the patterns from the Stick style and added brick decorations, rounded and polygonal elements, and polychromatic brick and paint color schemes. Porches were a common decorative feature of Queen Anne houses; they usually had a hipped roof and often wrapped around a front corner of the house; porches often displayed types of details such as gingerbread, spindlework, turrets, decorative balusters, and spandrels.
 
In the very early 20th century, the design of Queen Anne houses shifted as the style was being phased out. Two houses illustrate these changes. The house at 519 West 9th Street, Erie (built 1901), retained some Tudor traits that had been found in Queen Anne (and Shingle Style) house of the very late 19th century, including the rounded bays, simple sprockets supporting the jettied second floor and attic levels, and decorative chimney design. This house represents the transition from the Queen Anne to the Tudor Revival style. The house at 36 South Street, Union City (built 1906), exemplifies the transition to the Colonial Revival style; it has a Queen Anne style massing but Colonial Revival details. The Queen Anne features include the front gabled pavilion, hipped dormer, and 2-story bays; the Colonial Revival features include the Palladian window on the pavilion, the use of a frieze board below the eaves, and a streamlining of the overall decorative approach.
