SUBJECT: Winona Heritage Preservation Site -
255 Harriet Street
On Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 4:00 p.m. in the Heritage Room of City Hall (207 Lafayette Street), the Winona Heritage Preservation Commission will hold a public hearing to consider the designation of property, located at 255 Harriet Street, as a local Winona Heritage Preservation Site.
Historically referenced as the Bell House, this home displays elements of the Queen Anne style in its massing and roofline, while the many window arrangements are more suggestive of the Arts and Crafts style. The home was constructed in 1887 by Frederic and Frances Bell. Frances Bell was a daughter to local timber magnate, William Laird. Frederic Ball, an attorney, worked for the Laird-Norton Lumber Company. Although he rose to its presidency in 1917, he had also served in various capacities with the Weyerhaeuser Lumber and Timber Company as well as the Idaho and Montana Railway Company. At the local level, Mr. Ball served on the Winona Park Board for many years and was instrumental in the development of Lake Park. A detached carriage house structure complements this designation.
