Maurice I. Wolf House, 1912-13
Purcell, Feick, and Elmslie
4109 Dupont Avenue South, Minneapolis

This two-story hipped roof residence is similar to other Purcell and Elmslie designs from the period, such as the Adair house in Owatonna (see Greater Minnesota tour). It is a large box with a characteristic side entry, front living room, and rear dining and kitchen areas. Decorative details highlight the front window areas on both floors. The client had the house constructed without the architects’ supervision, and as a result all their specified details were not carried out. next stop >
