The original home improvement show, PBS' This Old House made a recent trip to Portland, Maine to do a segment on Portland's Victoria Mansion.  The focus of the current season is an Italianate style home in Arlington, Massachusetts.

One of the most exquisite examples of the Italianate style in the country is Victoria Mansion at 109 Danforth Street in Portland. Norm Abram came up to Portland last fall to get a tour of the mansion and learn more about the architectural style. Assistant director Tim Brosnihan explained the elements of an Italianate and showed off the unique exterior and interiors. The show is now available to watch online: This Old House - Victoria Mansion Video
