Downtown Guthrie, Oklahoma is known as the Guthrie Historic District and is even a National Historic Landmark (the whole district) because of the large collection of Victorian architecture. It is beautiful! Guthrie is about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City.

Thanks for the responses. I pretty much knew SF was the epicenter for Victorian architecture, but wanted to see what other cities offered (especially pics). Lafeyette Square looks amazing.
In Oakland/East Bay, most of the Victorians are centered in West Oakland, which has been deemed a "ghetto area" most of the past 50 years. There is some gentrification underway, due to the central location and architecture, but it still remains relatively untapped by Bay Area standards:

I wish I had the computer skills to post pics. I would post some pics of DC neighborhoods that would make Victorian fans salivate.

You can just post the links to them. I think this forum is kinda funny about posting actual pics anyway.

Louisville, Kentucky in the Old Louisville neighborhood just south of downtown has block after block of Victorian era homes. Other neighborhoods have Victorian structures, including New Albany, Indiana across the Ohio River, but Old Louisville has the most.
