The William H. Davenport House in Saline, Michigan, is an excellent example of Second Empire Victorian architecture. The home’s distinctive mansard roof is the Second Empire architectural element that differentiates it from Victorian Italianate design. The narrow eaves with supportive corbels, tall windows, projecting dormers, and small entry porch are also typical of Second Empire Victorian homes.
