Standout decorative extras are hallmarks of Victorian homes. Features include different styles and designs, such as carved columns, intricate gables and gable posts, scrollwork, porch railings and spindles, brackets, ornate molding, and gingerbread trim. One interesting fact: Although many of the pieces look hand-carved, they were in fact mass-produced, as were many of the home styles and other fabrications of the era./

Cape May. The Pink House, or Eldridge Johnson House, is said to the fanciest porch trim in the city. The 1892 house is characterized by pierced wooden balusters, a two-story porch, bargeboard and finial on the gable end, decorative cornices on the first and second story windows and round arched windows on the second story. It was moved to its Perry Street location from Congress Street location in the 1970s.
