Normally when we think of Philly, we think of the classical, colonial, or industrial-style homes. But there’s a goth side to Philly architecture: its Victorian-era homes and buildings.
Victorian architecture found its boom in the mid to late 1800s, during the reign of Queen Victoria. It’s often classified by towered roofs, asymmetrical facades, and detailed trim. Note: The Addams Family. Victorian-style and other Victorian-era homes (like the stone Gothic structures of the early to mid 1800s) have long been the setting for creepy movies and shows.
