T. P. Healy’s first Minneapolis house. Several things are striking about this house: its simplicity, its fishscale shakes, and its low-pitched roof. Most vernacular houses of this period feature roofs that are high pitched with multiple and multilevel gable ends. Does this design reflect the building style that Healy brought from Nova Scotia?
