Victorian homes are a conduit of sophistication: When you’re in one you feel fancy, or at least you feel that you should act fancy. Victorian architecture describes several – predominantly revival – architectural styles that were popular from the middle to the end of the 19th century; this period largely corresponds to the so-called Victorian era or the reign of Queen Victoria (1819-1901), after whom it was named.

While Great Britain is home to some of the world’s most iconic buildings constructed during the Victorian era, including the Palace of Westminster, The Royal Albert Hall, and the Cliveden House, the United States also has a handsome collection to offer. Not only are these constructions impressive to look at, but they are often steeped in a history of hauntings, esteemed guests, or Hollywood appearances.
