First Presbyterian Church

1922, Harry Wild Jones. N. Mitchell Ave. at 1st St. NW

As a well-known Minneapolis architect who apprenticed with H. H. Richardson, Harry Wild Jones became the first formally trained architecture professor at the University of Minnesota, where he helped reorganize the architectural curriculum. He is credited with introducing Shingle Style architecture regionally. This unexpectedly out-of-the-way commission brings Arts and Crafts touches to a basically Gothic Revival design. The church is stuccoed, with prominent eave and gable brackets, crenellated square bell tower, and pointed eyebrow dormers in the roof.
