Queen Anne/Eastlake

(1880-1905)

Although named after Queen Anne of England, the architectural style that became popular throughout the United States between 1880 and 1905 originated with an English architect Richard Norman Shaw. Identified by steeply pitched roofs, irregular massing, and diverse building materials and colors, Queen Anne homes often times included corner towers or turrets, large chimneys, and bay windows. Fanciful ornament, known as Eastlake detailing was added to some of the more elaborate homes. Increased wealth among the growing population of Minneapolis during the 1880s coincided with the popular craze for intricate Queen Anne designs. As a result, evidence of Queen Anne architecture is found concentrated in districts such as the Healy Block and Milwaukee Avenue, as well as scattered throughout the city.
