John Steinbeck Home: Examples of Row House Architecture
This Queen Anne style Victorian was the birthplace
and boyhood home of author John Steinbeck, built in Salinas, Calif., in
1897. The turreted house has since been restored; in addition to now
being a restaurant, The Steinbeck
House also is a National Historic Monument. Common among Victorian
houses are steep, multi-faceted roofs that have gables facing different
directions. Some high-end Victorian homes, such as The Steinbeck House,
have round or octagonal towers serving as the points of rooftops.
