I am an architectural historian and a freelance writer specializing in architecture and engineering. I have researched historic architecture throughout Minnesota, often organize and lead tours of historic architecture, have lectured many times on various aspects of historic architecture, and have published many articles on the subject. Furthermore, I have lived in Minnesota all my life. I can probably answer most questions regarding historic architecture in Minnesota.
