Dinky Dome, 1501-1509 University Avenue Southeast, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Dinky Dome, 1501-1509 University Avenue Southeast, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Now a Dinkytown landmark, the Dinky Dome as it is known today is named so both because of its adjacency to the neighboring commercial district and due to one of its most distinctive features, a glass dome. Designed by Architect John V. Koester, the building, built in 1915 for the Scandinavian Christian Unity Bible College / International Christian Missionary Bible College harks back to the classical revival styles of the early colonial buildings of America in its grandiose classic quality and in the details of the doors, windows, cornice, and capitals.
