|... Heritage House Bed & Breakfast has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1982? The house was built for $6,000 to $7,000 in 1903-1904. Of special interest to the National Register are such architectural features as the unique 8 foot diameter leaded glass window in the front parlor, thought to be the only round window of its kind in the region, and its solid granite foundation quarried from local sites. Also significant is the carriage house which was built in 1895 and served as warehouse, barn and carriage house for the original owners, John & Elizabeth Bensen. The brick structure with gambrel (barn) roof lines on all four faces is also believed to be the last of its kind in the upper Midwest.|

KARE 11 showed clips of the entire house filmed previously along with the live portions aired throughout their morning news broadcast.|
