Taking a different angle on #mansardmonday , inspired by @allthequeenshouses post from today, mansard roofs are usually associated with Victorian Second Empire or Beaux Arts buildings, but mansard style roofs experienced a revival in the 2nd half of the 20th century as a way to signal a departure from clean modernism and flat roofs. This mansard revival was most ubiquitous with commercial buildings and fast food restaurants, as their raised facades were great for hiding rooftop HVAC systems, but mansard roofs were also found on residential single family homes, although they usually were only 1 full story, as opposed to their 19th century counterparts. 1st two buildings are in #SalemMA , and the last single family example is in #northandoverma #mansardroof #mansardrevival #commercialarchitecture #postmodernarchitecture #secondempire #beauxarts #fastfoodarchitecture

This four story home was built for Francis Silas Rogers in 1886. It is said that Rogers attended every fire in the city before his death and used the cupola of his mansion as a fire watch tower. He helped establish Charleston’s first paid fire department. . . . . . . .

Raising a pint to today’s stop on the Campus Tour: Vassar College! Matthew Vassar was able to establish the college in 1861 because his brewery on the banks of the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie was a wildly successful enterprise. So, you could say Vassar was 'built on a foundation of malt, barley, hops, and yeast.' Vassar is a private, liberal arts college, and one of the historic 'Seven Sisters’ (the first elite women's colleges in the U.S. ) It was the second higher education institution in the country to grant degrees for women. Fun Fact: When it was opened, the college's Main Building was the largest building in the U.S. in terms of floor space.

Almost Second Empire. Some houses are difficult to place in a particular style. If the lower roof pitch on this house wrapped around the gable end, it would be a full-on Mansard roof, the form that defines a Second Empire style house. Built c. 1870, it is too early to be Queen Anne, the surface treatment is too plain to be Stick Style, and the roof is insufficiently Mansard-ed to be full Second Empire. I consider it a variant of Second Empire, but others could argue for other styles. "Eclectic Victorian-era" might be the safest description. All these architectural styles are described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners. Understanding the style of a house will help you understand which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.

Mood. 🎃 #Repost @historicalhomesofamerica • • • • • • The Ropes Mansion (late 1720s ), also called Ropes Memorial, is a Georgian Colonial mansion located at 318 Essex Street, located in the McIntire Historic District in Salem, Massachusetts.

Two of the reasons I fell in love with this house: the wide plank flooring and the unique dormer windows on the 3rd floor. Who's been up here and seen it first hand? The flooring is not tongue and groove and I think is original? It needs refinishing but I need a pro in to determine if it can be sanded down. Seems nice and thick to me but I don't know anything about floors. Not sure if you can see the detail on the windows but that wood goes all the way to the outside as the "roof" of the dormers on the exterior. I've never seen that before...anyone else? #wideplankfloors #originalwood #originalwoodfloors #originalwindows #heartpinefloors #oldgrowthwood #dormers #dormerwindows #mansardroof #mansardmonday #leadedglass #thefoutshouse #thisoldhouse #victorianhomes #secondempire #victorianarchitecture #ontarioarchitecture #oldhouseporn #tlti #vintagehome #deservetopreserve

The college town Fredonia boasts historical homes and buildings left and right. Pulled over for this Second Empire. I especially enjoy the trimming detail over the first floor windows. Reminds me of a clothing hanger or an Egyptian symbol.
