E.C. Tillotson House, 1912
Purcell, Feick, and Elmslie
2316 Oliver Avenue South, Minneapolis

The Tillotson House illustrates the fact that Purcell did not equate progressive architecture with the use of a flat roof. Located half a block from the Owre house, the home Purcell, Feick, and Elmslie built for E.C. Tillotson and his family is similar in plan, but its high-pitched roof sets it apart from homes like the Purcell-Cutts House and the Owre House. More conspicuous Prairie School elements include the bands of windows and the overhanging eaves. next stop >
