P&E Buildings Addresses

STILL ACCUMULATING.  Please note that almost all of the residences are private property (the one exception is Lake Place, which is accessible only by tour reservation with the Minneapolis Institute of Art).  While some owners are friendly to the door knocking curious, others are decidedly not to be bothered.  Please be considerate--you are not the first nor the only person to trip forward.  Sending a letter or telephoning in advance to request a visit is one way of asking politely for a look-see; many people are more generous when they can plan on your arrival.  The banks are generally open Monday through Friday during the business day.  The same thing applies to the various institutional buildings still in public service, particularly the not-to-be missed glory of the Woodbury County Court House.

Charles A. Purcell residence #2
William Gray Purcell, architect
1338 Park
Oak Park, Illinois [or River Forest, I'm not quite sure]

Built in the 1920s, this house was designed according to the desire of Purcell's father for a "traditional" home; the exterior is near-Tudor in flavor.
