A quick trip around the state uncovers the rich variety of architectural resources
that have helped define Minnesota. These resources reveal much about how the
state has changed over the past 150 years - how architectural styles have come
and gone, how economics shaped communities and why some building types have
disappeared. This sampler of National Register properties looks at some of the
thousands of Minnesota buildings identified as significant - from the grand
to the humble, the typical to the unique, and even some of the quirky.
