Asendorf House: Examples of Row House Architecture
The iconic Asendorf House, also known as the
Gingerbread House, has been a mainstay in Savannah, Ga., since it was
built by Cord Asendorf in 1889. Famed for its ornate wood trimming and
decorations, this landmark is said
to be one of the best examples of Steamboat Gothic architecture.
Victorian style evolved from Gothic roots, and it spawned many other
styles such as Gothic revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne,
stick style, Romanesque style and shingle style.
