Second Empire Victorian: The Haunted Archetype
I thank the website, because it spurred me to do some research on Victorian architectural styles.
What about this particular subset of Victorian style lends itself so well to haunted atmospheres? What about elongated dormer windows, towers and Masnard roofs is so terribly attractive to the undead?
Pop culture has many examples.
I have to admit that Second Empire Victorian is one of my all time favorite architectural styles (you may remember my model DREAM HOUSE).
Maybe the dead just have great taste.
