Like a lot of cities, Minneapolis has a mixed record when it comes to its history of race relations...and it's fascinating. Come learn more about Black history and its influence on Minneapolis at Preserve Minneapolis' tour next week!

"The proposed landscape features included in the current design proposal can also be found in present-day civic projects throughout the U.S. and globally, and they are popular; however, here at Peavey they are wholly incompatible with this iconic Modernist design, one of Friedberg’s most important surviving works and one of national significance."

"You’ve probably walked or driven past some local gems of Prairie School architecture and wished you could peek inside.

This week you’ll have a rare opportunity to do just that. Five private homes — all at least 100 years old and filled with original details such as woodwork, stained glass and hand-painted murals — will open their doors for a bus tour on July 22, a fundraiser for nonprofit Preserve Minneapolis."

Check it out - our bus tour was featured in yesterday's Star Tribune! There are still a few tickets left, so get yours while you can 🙂

Prairie School architects preferred natural materials presented naturally. Instead of wood painted and carved to look like stone, they said the wood’s natural grain patterns provided all the decoration that was needed.

Join us July 22 for an exclusive and extensive bus tour of 5 Prairie School homes in the Twin Cities designed by Purcell & Elmslie and Kirby Snyder.
