Every place with any wealth had Victorians built, but not every place kept them. LA has the Angeleno Heights neighborhood, but urban renewal knocked down scores of Victorians on Bunker Hill that had become rooming houses.

Eureka Springs, Arkansas is a town that is on the National Historic Register, in part because of the extensive Victorian architecture of the homes and the downtown shopping district.

I know I'm just splitting hairs here, but Cairo and Cape Girardeau are in the Middle Mississippi Valley, not the Upper Mississippi Valley. Cape Girardeau has a few Victorians but there aren't as many as one might think.

A lot of witches hats, look like haunted house!

That pic of Back Bay in the snow is almost painfully beautiful!

Port Townsend, Washington, is one of three recognized Victorian seaports on the National Historic Register (the other two being Cape May and Galveston). Some great old homes have been turned into bed and breakfast inns.
