English Antecedents of the Queen Anne in America: A Study of Anglo-American Domestic Architecture

Canon, Elizabeth Lawrence

There is a significant English influence on the development of the American domestic architectural style known as “Queen Anne.” Beginning in the 1870’s American architects used both “Old English” and “Queen Anne Revival” elements as a way for Anglophiles to express their values in their houses. These clients and their houses enabled a few American architects to transform into practice what they absorbed from English architectural journals. This architectural style is visually distinct from American Queen Anne buildings that develop after 1876 and thus constitutes an exploration of a previously undiscussed chapter of American Architecture.
