Re: Queen Anne colors
The paint job it had through the 20's could be very different from the original 1890's scheme. Paint analysis would possible disclose the original colors.
Roger Moss did 2 great books on historic color schemes, one for exterior, the other was for interior. You could probably locate a copy. The 1983 edition was done in cooperation with Sherwin-Williams for their historic paint color line; I have a well-worn copy of that book.
Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set.
