Postcard: UND President's Mansion

UND President's Mansion

A reader recently mentioned an old postcard from the early 20th century that shows the former UND President's Mansion in its early days. I'm guessing that this is the postcard in question. According to UND, the mansion was built in 1902 and housed four UND presidents. The building also hosted visits from President Franklin Roosevelt and Crown Prince Olav and Princess Martha of Norway. Today, the building functions as the J. Lloyd Stone Alumni Center.

Nope. Mine has a view from the side. University Avenue then was just a path. Am still looking for it.

If I was the President, I'd be pissed that this would've been my house years ago, but now get to live in the Brady Bunch house.

Mike Designed that house himself.

One bathroom for three girls and three boys to share. Plus it had doors to both bedrooms which in my house means the dang girls would keep the boys locked out all day.

That Mike was some kind of architect.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
