Masonry Historic Home in Dayton’s Bluff

762 East 6th Street, Saint Paul

This interesting masonry home was built around 1889 by Andrew J. Hoban, a local stonemason. While it is quite easy to walk right by this home on 6th Street as there is nothing “grand” about it, careful inspection of the home will show some unique features. I have noted these in the photos which include the large limestone voussoir over the front windows, the long side brackets on one side of the home, and the brick oriel window on the west side. A home completely built of brick is also rare for the area, as many homes are more Victorian in design.
