Historic Profile: The Amos B. Coe House and Carriage Barn are both excellent examples of the Queen Anne architectural style designed for the upper-middle class in the late nineteenth century. The brick residence was constructed for Amos B. Coe, a Minneapolis real estate developer, in 1884 – with a carriage barn addition two years later. The building’s Queen Anne form is enlivened by varied surface textures, multiple two-story bays, spindled porches and balconies, and chimney stacks piercing its multi-gable roof. Although many homes of this type were built in the late nineteenth century, few have survived and of those most have suffered major alterations. The Coe House and Carriage Barn are significant as an unusually picturesque representative of the Queen Anne style in an urban environment.
