From the Havre de Grace Historic District, Harford County, National Register of Historic Places Inventory-Nomination Form, Page 6.

A late Victorian style was the Queen Anne. Characterized by both juxtaposition of shapes and textures it is well represented by such Union Avenue mansions as the Seneca Mansion, 200 N. Union Ave, the Vosbury House, 123 S. Union Avenue and the Van Diver, 301 S. Union Avenue.

In explaining the variations and philosophical attitudes of the Victorian period a single property in town comes to mind. The Van Diver Mansion, 301 S. Union Avenue, is huge Queen Anne residence of 1886 with richly adorned gables and a large wrap abound porch.
Year built or dedicated as indicated on the structure or plaque: 1888

Full Inscription (unless noted above):
