This two-story house was relocated from downtown Fargo for Ruth Haggart by her family’s Haggart Construction. Pray designed the house, as well as two other large and prominent residences, for the Holes family in Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota. Defining Italianate features include prominent bay windows, lap siding with wooden hood molds over the windows, and a low-sloped roof supported with large brackets. A glass-enclosed sun porch fills the front corner of the house’s shallow ell.
