Victorian style developed and was quite popular from about 1820 to the early 1900's. Victorian homes are most commonly two stories with steep roof pitches, turrets and dormers. Porches are often large with turned posts and decorative railing. Decorative gable trim, corbels, and a variation of exterior finishes. This style actually is a combination of several other main styles like Italianate, Second Empire and Queen Anne. Designers began to implement characteristics of several styles to create what is most commonly known as Victorian. This style is sometimes viewed by critics as cluttered or overpowered with trim work and ornamentation, however these are the attributes that made Victorian homes so popular during the 1800's. During the late 1800's and early 1900's there were a great deal of Victorian style homes built by developers in the area. Today, Victorian homes are still being built throughout the United States. It remains a popular architectural style and can nearly always be found in the older neighborhoods of America. Many people seek these types of homes in good condition for restoration because of their timeless appeal. Many of these homes can be found on the historical register.
