The Arch of Amherstburg’s Architecture: King George to Queen Elizabeth’s Reign
- All season, anytime.
- Downtown Amherstburg, Richmond and Dalhousie
The more delicate and ornate architectural features found throughout Amherstburg were undoubtedly embraced during the Victorian Era, and are named as such. Victorian style homes are dotted throughout Amherstburg. They are slim and tall structures with pointed arches and skinny, tall windows. They are adorned with the ornamental details of cornices, brackets and carving inserts. Spindles are abundantly used as well as barge board, commonly known as Ginger Breading. Today a stroll down Rankin Avenue – a residential street in downtown Amherstburg – features many homes reflecting this style, which are lovingly maintained by the homeowners.
