The Emma Flower Taylor Mansion is the historic Watertown, NY home of its namesake and her husband John Byron Taylor. The 14,000-square-foot residence was built in 1896 as a wedding present from Mrs. Taylor’s father, former New York Governor and financier Roswell Pettibone Flower. It was the couple's main residence until 1912 when they divorced. Emma continued to live in the house until 1918, and then moved to a new home that once stood at 224 South Massey Street. (where the fire station now stands) She offered her old home to the US Government to use as a hospital during WWI, but they declined. The Canadian Government used it instead for the care of Canadian convalescent soldiers. The Taylor Mansion was designed by the New York City architecture firm Lamb & Rich, who operated from 1880-1899. It's Queen Anne in style and features wraparound porches, towers, projecting bays, dormers, and a complex roofline. It's constructed of rock faced, random course Medina sandstone which was quarried outside Rochester and then hand-cut on site. Inside the iron filigree doors are coffered ceilings, seven shimmering fireplaces, 14 bedrooms, and 9 bathrooms, including hand-painted storyboard tiles, which wrap around the bathroom formerly found in the children's living quarters. The original stained glass designed by Lamb studios has been stored in the attic for the last 60 years and is in wonderful condition! Today the mansion is divided into eight separate apartments. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

I started this piece last summer and have been picking away at it ever since. With over 100 hours into it, this homage to some of Fredericton’s lost heritage is finally complete! It would be impossible to depict every heritage building that’s been demolished over the past 50 odd years, so I’ve been restricted to picking my favourites. I hope this labour of love reminds people that our built heritage matters, and that if our current city council isn’t careful, the places we love and admire today may have to join the ones depicted here. This drawing is already promised to a lovely home, however there will be a very limited number of full size numbered prints available through Gallery on Queen. Feel free to inbox me for more information if you’re interested in having a piece of ‘Fredericton History’. #sketch #micronpen #penandink #architecturalsketch #linework #crosshatching #historicbuildings #lostheritage #demolished #demolishedbuildings #18thcenturyarchitecture #19thcenturyarchitecture #victorianarchitecture #woodwork #millwork #finecarpentry #masonry #stone #redbrick #sandstone #neonsigns #movietheatre #historicchurch #heritagehomes #gothicrevival #secondempire #queenanne #victorianfactory #marcuskingstonhistoricart #galleryonqueen @galleryonqueen_fineart

My absolute favorite thing about this house is its missing tooth. The word “dentil” comes from the French word “dent,” meaning “tooth”—and you can see why!

Let’s talk about the Second Empire style… identifying features are mansard roof with dormer windows on a steep lower slope; molded cornices bounding the lower roof slope both above and below; decorative brackets are found underneath eaves. Here are three local examples to check out when walking: 1.) north Fancher 2.) south Pine 3.) south Oak. #downtownmp #mtpleasantmi #meetmtp #puremichigan #localhistory #architecture #historicpreservation #historicpreservation #secondempire #mansardroof

This Lawrence, KS, home was built by a local mill owner by the name of S.T. Zimmerman in circa 1870. Such a lovely bell-cast mansard roof and extensive wrought iron detailing. The exterior has seen barely any alteration since it's beginnings.

Terrace Hill in Des Moines, Iowa. Built from 1867 to 1869, costing $400,000 - a LOT of money in that day! It went thru several families and was abandoned at one point; in 1971 the owners graciously donated the home to the state of Iowa to serve as the governor's personal home. Each governor has lived here since, but you can also take tours of the home and property. As every little kid growing up in DSM has! . . 📍2300 Grand Ave, DSM, IA . .

⠀⠀ Raap House⠀ ⠀ 📆MANSARD MONDAY📆⠀ 📍1407 N. Hoyne⠀ ⠀ 🗝Built by German wine and beer merchant John H. Rapp in 1880, this was the largest single-family estate in Wicker Park at the time. The original coach house, behind the mansion, is now a separate residence. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 🗝This was not a happy home. Mrs. Rapp went insane, a son was convicted of embezzlement, and Rapp was murdered by his female bookkeeper. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 🗝The home itself is of Second Empire style, with a large, curved mansard roof.

ca. 1875 Warren Leffel began employment with his father’s firm, James Leffel & Company, in 1865 and had this Second Empire dandy built a decade later. Along with the alternating convex/concave mansard roof shapes, note the elaborate Victorian embellishments that define the facade of the Leffel House. #springfieldohio #southfountainhistoricaldistrictspringfieldohio #mansardmonday #secondempire #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #archi_ologie #oldhouselove.

c. mid to late 1800s The Wilcox-Meech House was built by John Wilcox, Middletown's Chief of Police. The architect was Julius Hotchkiss, a native of Waterbury who served as the city's mayor. In the 1850s he moved to Middletown. In addition to serving as agent and treasurer for the Russell Manufacturing Co., Hotchkiss was also a member of the state house of representatives in 1851 and 1858; elected as a Democrat to the Fortieth Congress; Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut in 1870 before he died in 1879. Back to the house ownership - George Thomas Meech purchased the property in 1881 and lived there into the 1930s. Meech served as a member Company C, 21st Connecticut Infantry during the Civil War and was served three years before being discharged with a disability. Back in Middletown, he was a partner in the Meech & Stoddard, dealing in the sale of flour, grain and field seeds. They also established a feed mill in town. The house was a home until 1973, at which time is was sold to Middlesex Memorial Hospital.

The Martha Washington Inn was initially built was a Federal style residence for General Francis Preston in 1832 and utilized as a college from 1858-1931. The five bay central portion is original, while the three bay wings flanking the original house are an 1850's addition. A late 1890's renovation modernized the building with the addition of a mansard roof, and has remained relatively the same since. #virginia . . . . . #mansardmonday #secondempire #mansard #federal #virginia #archi_ologie #historichotelsofamerica #historichomes #historicbuilding #accidentallywesanderson #spring #tourism #curbed #chasing_facades #nikon #nikonphotography

Sea Lawn // 1875 // Located next to the former Narragansett Pier Casino, Sea Lawn (aka the Reading Room) is an excellent example of a Second Empire structure with Stick style detailing. Built in 1875, The Reading Room was originally constructed as a summer cottage, Sea Lawn and was located on a nearby street and moved shortly after the completion of the Narragansett Pier Casino owners as an amenity of the new resort. The building was a men's club where the elite residents and guests of Narragansett Pier could meet, drink and discuss books over cigars. The building was restored by Lila Delman Real Estate office, who now occupies the site with some private apartments. #mansard #mansardmonday #secondempire #architecture #archi_ologie #narragansett #narragansettri #rhodeisland #beach #waterfront #realestate #historicpreservation #thisplacematters #newengland #curbappeal #curbed #facade #chasing_facades #housebeautiful #mywalk #frontdoor #mansardroof #archidaily #archilovers #architecturelovers

Thaddeus Fairbanks House built in 1883 in St. Johnsbury, VT. In 1883, the local St. Johnsbury newspaper The Caledonian used the description “a very fine house” for the Fairbanks family residence named Brantview, the construction of which was completed on the present-day Academy campus in 1884. In 1931, Brantview became an Academy dormitory (for girls and, later, boys). Thaddeus Fairbanks (January 17, 1796 – April 12, 1886) was an American inventor. He was an inventor of heating and cook stoves, cast iron plows, and other items. His greatest success was the invention and manufacture of the platform scale, which allowed the weighing of large objects accurately. He was a co-founder of St. Johnsbury Academy.

#52weeksofhomeweek15: Color balances all the wood fearures in my interior and exterior. 1. A decorative terracotta belt, painted teal (in tribute to @tealphoto which used to have its studio here) courses between the first and second stories of the front facade. . 2. The S-curved Mansard roof is clad with embossed tin panels painted red. This, coupled with the brick walls painted pale yellow and the brown decorative wood trim make me one of the most distinctive buildings in Mechanicsburg. . 3. The rear carriage house (now a garage) has a similar Mansard and a barn red metal roof. . 4. The teal color palette continues in the porch ceiling. . 5. And in the first floor half bath ceiling. . 6, 7. The second floor bath and water closet have papered ceilings. . 8. The 3rd floor bedroom's apricot ceiling. . 9.

Messe des rameaux à Fontainebleau - confiné sur La Tribune du château Nous sommes dans La Chapelle de la Trinité du Château de Fontainebleau. Ancienne église fondée par saint Louis en 1259, celle-ci a été rattachée au château sous François Ier. Reconstruite à partir de ce règne et sous celui d’Henri II, elle reçoit la voûte actuelle sous Henri IV et fut terminée par Louis XIII puis enrichie par Louis XIV, Louis XV et Louis XVI. Les dernières peintures décoratives exécutées dans la chapelle sont les tableaux ovales réalisés sous Louis XVI. Le principal évènement qui eut lieu dans cette chapelle fut le mariage de Louis XV et Marie Leszczyńska en 1725 La chapelle fut aussi le théâtre du mariage de Marie-Louise d'Orléans avec Charles II d'Espagne (représenté par le prince de Conti) et du baptême du prince Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte (futur Napoléon III) en 1810 et du mariage de Ferdinand-Philippe d'Orléans avec Hélène de Mecklembourg-Schwerin le 30 mai 1837. #fontainebleau #chateaudefontainebleau #france #patrimoine #histoire #henriIV #francoisIer #lustre #cristal #louisXIV #louisXV #louisXVI #royal #frencharchitecture #frenchart #frenchinterior #frenchsculpture #furniture #secondempire #napoleonIII #ambiance #light #photography #colors #reflet @chateaufontainebleau #church #chapelle

Found this brick second empire style home right around the corner from where Bess Truman was born in 1885! I love the look of the remnants of ivy on brick - although removed, it leaves such an interesting and weathered look. Such beautifully tall windows make me wonder why we ever chose to change this style! • • • • • • • • #italianate #secondempire #victorian #edwardian #1800s #1900s #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #thisoldhouse #oldhomes #historichouses #historichomes #kcmo #independencemo #housesofinstagram   #midwest #archigram #brickstory #historic #travelamerica #oldamerica #besstruman

I think I squishified Montreal’s city hall. Just a bit. I was trying to be quick and I messed up the proportions. Left off a few windows. Not sure what the city is doing (something on the roof), but there’s been orange cones and safety barriers outside for a looong time. Construction on the building started in 1872. You’d think it’d be done by now... . (FYI the photo with the snow is a different angle, a few months back. The snow is almost gone ⛄️🔥) . . . . #sketch_arq #art #drawing #pendrawing #sketching #urbansketching #urbansketch #usk #citysketch #sketch #sketchbook #illustration #sketchcollector #global_sketchers #instagood #montreal #mtl #mtllife #mtlart #uskmontreal #pentelarts #pentelofamerica #moleskine #blackwork #blackworknow #tempuradesign #inksketch # #urbansketchers_kamianets #secondempire

One way I've used Instagram to escape the confines of being inside is scrolling through accounts that feature beautiful cities and architecture (my preference is old, quirky, character homes). I really miss long dogwalks and hopping on the motorcycle and discovering new places. The freedom of being able to wander, even get a little lost. If you tap on the photo, I've tagged some favourite accounts I always return to. 😍 Here's an image of a townhouse I snapped. I liked the fact that the tree was naked, allowing you to see more of the pink side (my favourite side). 🖤💖 What side would you rather live in?

The Krueger Scott Mansion, located in Newark, NJ. The 40 room mansion was built in 1888 by Gottfried Krueger (1837–1926), founder of Newark's Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company and owner of several other breweries. The construction cost at the time was $250,000. The mansion was sold to the Valley of Newark Scottish Rite Freemasons in 1926 for $100,000. A 700-seat auditorium was added to the mansion to accommodate for various meetings. The mansion was purchased in 1958 by Louise Scott for $85,000. Scott operated a beauty school out of the first floor of the mansion while keeping the upper levels as her private residence. The mansion was added to the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic places in 1972. Scott died in 1982 and ownership of the mansion passed to the city of Newark. In 1991, the New Jersey Historic Trust funded a bond for $625,812 to stabilize the exterior of the building.The city of Newark matched that amount, and over the years devoted more than $4 million to turning the home into a center focusing on the black contribution to Newark's development. The federal government contributed an additional $1.5 million but after a decade of work, plans to turn the house into an African-American cultural center were frozen by the city's Municipal Council, which refused to allocate any more money for the project. It is also the Monarch's mansion in the cartoon The Venture Bros. Here are some photos of the home from NJ Historical Society as well as Messy Nessy Website showing the home in its original appearance as well as what it appears like today. We shared this one our site today as well for those interested.

M is for mansard! You’d be hard pressed to walk down many streets in Providence and not see a mansard roof. Identifiable by a steep second slope punctuated by dormer windows, it is associated with the Second Empire and Beaux-Arts styles of the second half of the 19th c. The name comes from French architect Francois Mansart. Left to right: The ornate Old Providence Journal Building downtown in the French Renaissance style (1906, Peabody & Stearns). Even lowly stables can be grand! Second, the carriage house of the Richard H. Deming House in Elmwood (c. 1870). Next, the Daniel Hale-Albert G. Durfee House (1827, remodeled c. 1882) in Fox Point. The unusual Second Empire with striking curved bay on Benefit Street is the Gen. Ambrose Burnside House (1866-67, Alfred Stone). This image from 2017 shows the patterned slate work of the lower canopy— which we hope will be replaced after missing for two years. Right, the Peter Green House, home to Brown University’s History Department, was originally the Lippitt-Guild House and located around the corner on Angell Street (1868, 2007 renovation by @llbarch). #abcsofarchitecture #mansard #mansardroof #francoismansart #frenchrenaissance #secondempire #beauxarts #providence #pvd #rhodeisland #downtown #providencejournal #projo @provjournal #peabodyandstearns #westminsterstreet #carriagehouse #elmwood #foxpoint #collegehill #nationalregister #historicdistrict #nationallandmark #benefitstreet #generalburnside #alfredstone @brownu #petergreenhouse #historydept #historic #architecture

J’ai profité du confinement pour m’essayer à la réalisation d’une paire de souliers 1860. Entre la coupe et le façonnage des talons en bois, j’y ai laissé un ou deux doigts... Mais voilà le résultat ! Il ne me reste plus qu’à les tester sur une polka ✨! #historicalcostuming #slippers #slippershoes #challenge #prototype #19thcentury #1860s #fashion #19thcenturyfashion #blackandwhite #costumier #costumehistorique #crinoline #costumedesign #secondempire #shoes #handmade #souliers #napoleon #fashionhistory #confinementcreatif #stayhomechallenge

During this challenging and heartbreaking time, remembering fondly April in Paris while a student at Reid Hall, Columbia University. Here in front of Palais Garnier, a monument historique of the Napolean III style, completed in 1875 and designed by architect Charles Garnier. Art in all its forms endures! _ _ _ #tbt @operadeparis #operagarnier #charlesgarnier #opera #ballet #paris #napoleon #architecture #architect #secondempire #palaisgarnier #beauxarts #baroque #classicism @columbia @barnardcollege @barnardalumnae #thankyou to @bbergdoll for the history of architecture #stayhome #togetherathome #reminiscing #nostalgia #april #1991 #oldphoto

Along the Santa Fe Trail's remains you will find the Bingham-Waggoner estate, a huge Italianate home with Queen Anne details. George Caleb Bingham lived here, a Missouri police chief, soldier, and artist dubbed "the Missouri artist". He painted many pieces adressing different political issues at the time as well as capturing 1800s frontier life. It is said this house was built in 1852, while there was an original structure located here in 1827. The original Santa Fe trail pathways can still be found in the form of swales (wagon ruts). • William Waggoner was the next owner, coming from Pennsylvania and having success as a miller. Him and his wife had great commercial success with their flours and became known for their "Queen of the Pantry" flours all over the midwest. Swipe to see a quick peek into the incredible full wrap-around porch and horse stables! 👉 • • • • #binghamwaggonerestate #georgecalebbingham #italianate #queenanne #queenannevictorian #victorian #1800s #1900s #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #thisoldhouse #oldhomes #historichouses #historichomes #kcmo #independencemo #housesofinstagram #secondempire #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #oldhousenthusiast #architecture #oldbuildings
