With their gingerbread trim and ornate decoration the Queen Anne style is what most people imagine when they think of a Victorian house. Houses of this style were built throughout the country between 1880 and WWI. They could be found in towns and cities of all sizes. Many remain today, some lovingly restored to their former glory.
The prototype for rhis kit is located in Livingston Manor, NY. It was built in 1884 for A.P. Dubois, a successful merchant in town. In fact, the Dubois family seemed to own a good chunk of the town between the general mercantile store and a retail coal and oil dealership. They even had a street named after them. Their house was located adjacent to the railroad tracks and across the street from the family store. The house remained the family home for many years. It still stands today, beautifully restored, a survivor from an earlier era.
