On This Date in Minnesota History: October 29

October 29, 1974 – Located in Minneapolis, the Purcell-Cutts House was designed by the firm of Purcell, Feick and Elmslie for architect William Purcell and his family in 1913.

The dwelling is a notable example of Prairie School architecture, featuring a long, narrow floor plan that disregards Victorian concepts about room divisions. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on this date. It is now part of the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art and has been extensively restored. The museum conducts tours on the second weekend of every month.
