People built them. They were a building trend in different parts of the country many moons ago. Albany has a wide variety of architecture. The city wasn't built all at one time. Most of them are in pricy neighborhoods with taxes that can cause a coronary. Many are gorgeous inside and have beautiful landscaping along with very nice sized lots.

Here's a good article written by a journalism student on these homes. The one thing I know about them is that when they go on the market, they are usually snatched up very quickly, especially the ones that have not had substantial changes made to them.
