Long thought to be another work of William Bray and Carl Nystrom, recent research has revealed that this stunning two-story Colonial Revival house — known for the stone lions guarding the home from their perch on the front stairs — is the work of German and Lignell. (Together these two firms designed most of the homes found on the East End and many of the historic buildings that grace downtown Duluth). William Richardson was an attorney.
