Random Notes - A Blog
27 April 2007
PST visitors, in increasing numbers, are writing to point out errors, add facts and contribute reminiscences. As a result, a building pictured in a postcard image of a high school in Tigerton, Wisconsin, has been identified as still extant, real street addresses have been added to some of Purcell & Elmslie’s houses near Lake Minnetonka (now properly located in Excelsior and Wayzata), and photographs of PS buildings are being added in the state of Mississippi, of all places. Thanks to Dr. Chris Nelson, Ann Meyer, and Phil Pecord, respectively, for these contributions.
Butch Kmet continues to send fine photographs of Utah PS buildings. Of special note is the amazing Becker House in Ogden. It’s a handsome but somewhat stolid house that is enlivened by unique latticework incorporated in the house’s soffits and the garden pergolas.
As always, I welcome your comments about this site or any Prairie School building.
