The Beauty of Dutchtown, Part 24: Minnesota Avenue Between Dakota and Osceola Streets, West Side

North of Dakota Street, Minnesota Avenue takes on a totally diverse character architecturally, with a wide variety of styles and sizes of houses. The two houses below are clearly twins, but the developer switched the front facade brick color and pediment design.

These two houses below are from different eras, but due to their similar massing, they work well together along the street wall.

The house below on the left is a real survivor, with a shallow Mansard roof, it is in the Second Empire style, but it is very old and very unique.

There are more old wood frame houses on the block, as well.
