Architect AvenueIn 1905, a contest was held in one of the farthest corners of Hennepin County for well-designed homes for the up-and-coming middle class. Major Twin Cities architects were solicited to develop affordable homes, which would combine "luxury, elegance, utility, and comfort"...and each had to cost $3,000 or less (including landscaping and sidewalk). Twelve local architects submitted designs; six were chosen and built. This mini-development became "Architect Avenue," developed and promoted by Thomas Lowry, and all six of these unique and original homes still exist.
