Overview

Forty-one historic Florida houses built in the Victorian era of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are brilliantly captured in all their beauty, character, and detail, and accompanied by fascinating tales of their original (often famous) owners. Come along and visit twenty-one cities in the great Sunshine State, from the Panhandle region in the far northwest, to the island of Key West in the far south. Victorian architecture was the style chosen by the social elite of the era for their luxurious estates. From beautifully designed houses created for families on a “livable” cottage scale and set along charming tree-lined suburban streets, to the mammoth seaside pleasure palaces of the wealthy heads of industry and the socially elite, Florida’s Historic Victorian Homes delivers a feast for one’s eyes and mind, a showcase of some of the most enduring Victorian architecture in Florida.
