Height to Hang Curtains in Old Victorian?

Good Questions

Q: Hi all. I need some advice and I've looked all over the internet and am coming up empty. I recently moved into a old Victorian. The ceilings are 9 feet tall. The windows have pretty Victorian casings, with corner blocks with a circular motif. The picture is with the window treatments that came with the house. I can't wait to put up my linen curtains, but I don't know if I should hang above the casing or keep the rods where they are. I will be reusing the rods. Do you all have any suggestions?
