East Lake of the Isles Walking Tour May 21st

Houses by Ernest Kennedy and Liebenberg and Kaplan in the 2600 block.

‘Ever wonder about the history of the elegant houses on Lake of the Isles? Join guide Trilby Busch to hear about the history of the development of the lake, the parkway, and the houses on it–who built them and who lived in them, dates and styles.

Meet at the intersection of West 27th Street and East Lake of the Isles Parkway at 1 p.m., and walk the east side of the lake, taking a detour onto Lake Place. The tour will be canceled only in case of heavy rain or severe weather at the time of the tour.

The exquisite Purcell-Cutts House on Lake Place.

Some of Minneapolis’s most celebrated architects built residences on East Lake of the Isles:  Ernest Kennedy, William Gray Purcell, Liebenberg and Kaplan,  Adam Lansing Dorr, and Harry Wild Jones, to name just a few. While no houses on the lake were designed or built by T.P. Healy (he died before the boulevard was developed), one house on the tour was designed by master builder Henry Ingham.
