2306 East Superior Street | Architect: I. Vernon Hill | Built: 1901 | Extant

Another Tudor Revival house designed by I. Vernon Hill, the Patrick home features carved eagle’s heads on brackets supporting the third-story gables. Patrick came to Duluth to work for grocery wholesaler Stone-Ordean-Wells before creating F. A. Patrick and Company, one of the country’s foremost woolen manufacturers, famous for its Mackinaw jacket. In 1902 Patrick revived Duluth’s dormant Chamber of Commerce, renaming it the Duluth Commercial Club (today it is once again the Chamber of Commerce).
