Minneapolis South Tour
Book-ended by Purcell and Feick‚Äôs splendid Stewart Memorial Church and four later speculative houses by Purcell, the Minneapolis South tour presents a range of Prairie School gems. Large and small, the structures reflect the flexibility of the architects, while being unified by common elements. Included is the C. T. Backus House, considered the best example of the small open plan. first stop >
