I grew up in Minnesota and never knew about this place. Great pix!
I wonder what it looks like now.
i live in minnesota and have never heard about this place either-I wonder if it’s still there!
Love these images- really evocative of the time!
How interesting! I also wonder if it is still in existence and if so, if it is a private residence?
the only thing i can think of when i look at these photos is “where are the people of color?” it’s like they didn’t exist in the fifties. in photos at least.
Great pictures. Love the barrel vaults!
I also grew up in Minnesota, and still live here, I’ve never even heard of this place! It looks so cool!
@Sami: it was the fifties after all…
A very stylish and innovatively designed house, but also a fascinating journey back in time.
Reminds me of a cool dollhouse that you could open up..
Love the house and the dresses the women are wearing :p
i love the litktle gag with the kids swivelled round to face the telivisions instead of facing mum, the kitchen and the food.
My soon to be Grandfather-In law is Don Hustad. He still lives in this home of which he designed in the 1940s. The house is still breathtaking and I feel very blessed that these pictures are not only featured in Life Magazine but they are of amazing family I am about to become a part of.
I am the little girl in the photos. My father, Don Hustad, designed the home in the mid 1950′s and yes the home still stands and the creator still lives there- the photos are of our family and neighborhood friends. Fun to see again.
what a lovely bit of history lesson, this home was featured in one of my architecture courses at college and I framed some of these images from Life magazine then; how wonderful to be united again and to know the home still occupied; such a gift.
