According to Minneapolis building permits, Ole and Emma Olson commissioned Contractor A. P. Sampson to both design and build this Colonial Revival home at a total cost of $3,730, including a barn. Construction was completed in June of 1903.

With its symmetrical facade and classic detailing, the home is a fine example of the Colonial Revival style, which was very popular at the time.


Minneapolis City Directories and Census records show that Ole Olson owned what must likely have been a successful butcher shop in Minneapolis. Ole and Emma Olson lived at 3128 Park Avenue with their daughter, Eva, until 1918.
