2201 East Superior Street | Architects: John Wangenstein & William Baillie | Built: 1892 | Extant

While its wrap-around porch and distinctive shingle work are typical of the Queen Anne style, the Britt’s house also features a Craftsman-style porch found in homes built thirty years after this one went up as one of the first in the East End neighborhood. Britts was the president of the St. Louis County State Bank, which he founded in 1887 — the same year Duluth regained the city charter it lost in the financial panic of 1873.
