WHS October Program
Let’s Talk Architecture
Thursday, October 2, 2014

Wayzata Community Room (next to city hall)

Join the Wayzata Historical Society for the last program of the year. We will look at several different architects that built many of the large homes around Lake Minnetonka, explore the influences of architecture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the impact this had on the building done here in Wayzata and surrounding communities. Some of the architects we will discuss are Cass Gilbert, Harry Wild Jones, William Channing Whitney, Edwin Lundie, and several others.
