    Default Possible Victorian... Can anyone help identify my new home?

    I am in the process of buying this home. The current owner claims it to have been built in the 1920s. However, I have found evidence to show that the home dates until AT LEAST 1901. Can anyone help me identify the possible style?

    The front and back porches have been replaced/redone within the past ten years. The front porch was originally wood before termite damage left it in shambles and the owner completely replaced it.

    It's a very large home with a full basement, partially finished attic, etc.

    Thank you!!

    It's a Queen Anne; the cross gables and high peak show that. A very plain house, one of the thousands of respectable middle-class homes built in the early 20th Century. It could be as late as 1920, but 1900 is more likely. You can buy a Queen Anne built in the 21st Century, for that matter.

    Tax records often show the year a certain form was adopted instead of the actual date of the house. Everything in New Albany, Indiana was built in 1920 or later according to the Assessor cards.
