Historic Profile: The William H. Hinkle House survives as a remaining trace of the once elegant residential South 10 th Street, bordering downtown Minneapolis. Well-known architect William Channing Whitney was commissioned by William H. Hinkle, a leading flour producer, to design a prominent urban residence. Whitney, who was never regarded as a design innovator, chose a variant of the Georgian Revival style of architecture. The result is a distinguished structure, with a formal, symmetrical façade. Apart from layers of white paint and the removal of a balustrade, the house and its lot appear today as they did in 1887.
