Paris Ontario - Canada - 214 Grand River North - Second Empire - Victorian Architecture

Second Empire Architecture

 

For smaller buildings and residences the style is less elaborate, but is still ornate and very impressive. Windows are generally high with elegant surrounding moldings and there is always a Mansard roof punctuated with gabled or elliptical dormers. Roofs and balconies are generally embellished with iron cresting, and the roof itself is often dichromatic. 250
