    1897 Queen Anne Colonial
    Cadiz, OH

    This looks like a typical “I” house which is a house type, not a style. If the 1850’s provenance is accurate then the house probably started out as a rather plain example but it has been upgraded and enhanced over the years. It now bears a somewhat stronger stylistic affiliation with the Queen Anne style but without the architectural drama associated with formal Queen Anne examples. The porch entry reminds me of this porch example in Millheim, PA, that I photographed about a decade ago: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/3543931729/in/album-72157618354077923/ The “I” house type was a very popular form of housing from the 1840’s until the 1870’s and was built from New York to California. It was so popular because the simple rectangular form with the common placement of two chimneys at either end that didn’t require a formal architect’s skills. Most folks with common carpentry skills could construct houses of this type without much difficulty. This house continued to be loved after I houses started to fade away in the 1870’s. So, probably around 1890, changes were made to the house to make it look more stylish and current. It should still make a good home for someone or their family.
