Lost Minneapolis Mansions Part II | The mansion of Mrs. Louise McNair was a fine red stone mansion to say the very least. Set on a large gracious lot with heavy details, turrets and bays this home contained every amenity one could desire. Mrs. Shaw's husband was a well known lawyer and judge before becoming mayor of St. Anthony in 1869. Her husband died in 1885 shortly before completing the great mansion at 1301 Linden Ave.
Mantle in the Adam Bedroom in Hillwood | Hillwood Estate, Museum and Garden | Marjorie Post maintained strong ties to the 18th-century French decorating style that she developed in the 1920s, transferring much of this look to her new home at Hillwood in the mid-1950s.
Linden Towers | 1889 Victorian House Restoration | Linden Towers Was completed in 1878 by one of the Bonanza Kings, James C Flood. Flood owned a mansion in San Francisco, but wanted a nice little country estate to get away to. The house ended up being a 45,000 square foot mansion with six stories in the Italianate style. One can see no expense was spared. Sadly this home was torn down in the late 1930s after a sale sold most of it's treasures.
