Queen Anne Architecture


This home was built in 1893 for physician John M Evans and his wife.  It has a rather unusual onion-dome over the front porch.  It was probably a very distinctive house on this street back when it was built but, today it is dwarfed by the State of Arizona office buildings that surround it.  It was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 1976.


I love all those lacy details on that dome over the porch.  When I posted about this house ten years ago, it was being used by the Arizona State Library.  Today it houses an office of Historic Preservation.  How appropriate.

That is a pity it is surrounded by the glass buildings now. Must have been a great sight when it was built.

Over a hundred years old and it still looks beautiful... awesome.

This happens so often now Sharon, I guess we have to be thankful that they heritage list and preserve these wonderful old buildings ✨

I'm glad this place still exists. So many have been torn down.

That one is a beauty.

What a beautiful building. Being surrounded by all those glass buildings, it really stands out and maybe more people will see and appreciate it.

Interesting architecture! Definitely not something I'd expect to see in the Southwest.

There have been a lot of changes in occupants of many of the structures you photographed ten years ago. The only thing constant is change, I guess.
