Historic Profile: Designed by George Washington Maher the Winton House represents the purest example of the Prairie School in Minneapolis, some have suggested Maher, a Chicago architect, was considered by many in the same light as Frank Lloyd Wright. The Winton House, although its detailing and shape are considered plain, embodies a refinement of Maher’s style. The low overhanging roof, the entrance centerpiece and the detailing are all in the Prairie Style. The house was built for the Wintons, a prominent family in the lumber industry. C. Winton also invested time as the president of WLOL radio station and director of the Northwestern National Bank. The house is considered significant because of its affiliation with a prominent architect, its exhibition of the Prairie School and the reputation of its original inhabitants.
