There are several different styles that fall into the Victorian era such as a Queen Anne. The Victorian era started at about 1860 and ended around 1900. The Victorian houses are known for being romantic, have a lot of detail from patterns and fabrics. Today, the houses still maintain the original character but are updated with the patterns and fabrics. Victorian houses often have a steep roof, a dominant front-facing gable, patterned shingles, and a bay window.
