Historic Residences

Some of the old houses in this selection of historic photos survive. A walk around the neighborhood is a great way to discover them. As you go on your walk or flip through this collection, see how very many of the buildings have turrets, towers or other distinctive features on one corner. It is up to you now to decide if the playful treatment of corners is characteristic of Queen Anne house, if they show us to be a particular nosy bunch of neighbors who want to look around corners without anyone knowing, or if the Queen Anne historian who put together this collection, just happened to like buildings with fanciful corner features.
