This impressive red Minnesota sandstone home is 12365 square feet, has twenty-two rooms, eleven of which are bedrooms. With its semi-circular arches for doors and windows, thick walls, several columns, the home was a combination of various styles, but mostly characteristics of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, which was a first in Dubuque.
