Minnesota's residential architecture has taken many forms, from early vernacular shanties to modest bungalows to high-style mansions of the wealthy. Single-family housing is the most prevalent building type nominated to the National Register of Historic Places, both individually and as part of historic districts. These single-family homes, dating from throughout Minnesota's history, are just a few of the hundreds that have been recognized for their historical or architectural significance.
