Architect Avenue walking tour
#11590
What: Architect AvenuePreserve Minneapolis offers unique tours that highlight the natural, built, and cultural treasures found throughout the City. On Tuesday, Aug. 19, 6:30 p.m., take a walking tour of Architect Avenue in Northeast Minneapolis, led by Kathy Kullberg. n 1905, a contest was held in one of the farthest corners of Hennepin County for well-designed homes for the up-and-coming middle class. Major Twin Cities architects were solicited to develop affordable homes, which would combine "luxury, elegance, utility, and comfort"...and each had to cost $3,000 or less (including landscaping and sidewalk). Twelve local architects submitted designs; six were chosen and built. This mini-development became "Architect Avenue," developed and promoted by Thomas Lowry, and all six of these unique and original homes still exist. This tour walks about 3/4 of a mile. Cost of the tour is $8. Pre-register online at www.preserveminneapolis.org.
When: Tuesday, Aug. 19, 6:30 p.m.
