Although certainly missing some original decorative elements, this house still makes a strong stylistic and historic statement. Maria Sanford was a first woman professor at the University of Minnesota, a noted speaker and beloved public figure, and among the leaders of Minnesota’s nascent environmental movement that led to the creation of Itasca State Park to conserve its wilderness forest at the Mississippi headwaters. The house is generally in the Stick style, whose features are: • steep pitched gable roof • prominent vergeboards on gables • decorative trusses on gables (not present here) • horizontal and vertical banding in the wall surfaces and on decorative pieces

Remodeled siding covers any Stick wall detailing, but the vergeboards show grooved decorative striping, a key Stick style detail.
