Homes and Décor of the Victorian Upper-Middle Class “For, in the Veneering establishment, from the hall-chairs with the new coat of arms, to the grand pianoforte with the new action, and upstairs again to the new fire-escape, all things were in a state of high varnish and polish” (Dickens 17). The homes of upper-middle class Victorians were as extravagant as their money would afford, inside and out. In a home where one hoped to host gatherings, parties, and the like, the outside appearance spoke a bit of prestige, and it was important to make a show of as much ‘stuff’ as possible on the inside.

Images and photographs of upper-middle class homes portray distinct likenesses to the fashions of high society dwellings.

Originating in the late Victorian era, the house museum proves that the American dream, although challenging, is attainable. Christian Heurich’s Lager Beer Brewery was first established near what is now the site of the Kennedy Center and the entrance to the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Bridge. Despite the economic depression of 1873 and Prohibition in 1917, Heurich’s company prospered due to his hard work.
