Old Highland Neighborhood

1508 Dupont Ave. N.

Built 1865 Greek Revival & Italianate
Ochen Kaylan and Leslie Ball
This 1865 Greek Revival/Italianate-style home is on the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation list as the oldest surviving residence in North Mpls., and is one of the oldest surviving houses in the city. In 1981, the home (then a duplex) was rescued and restored by Charlie and Angie Nelson. And just a few months ago, the house having recently been converted back to a single-family home, we, as its newest stewards, have started adding our own touches. This includes a new living room fireplace and custom furniture we designed and built. We rented on Nicollet Island for many years, and couldn’t imagine ever finding a home and community as magical as the island. But we discovered this home, and the jewel that is the Old Highland neighborhood, and fell in love with both. We look forward to sharing with you.
