Archive Dive: The F. A. Patrick House

This week’s Archive Dive takes us inside our newest book, “Duluth’s Grand Old Architecture 1870–1940,” for a look at the 1900 Patrick House at 2306 E. Superior Street and designed by Duluth architect I. Vernon Hill. One of the few homes in Duluth using a Picturesque design, accented with some Tudor Revival, it was a stylish house built for the man who would go on to popularize the Mackinaw jacket throughout the nation.
