Architecture critic Larry Millett has two new books out detailing the buildings of the Lake District in Minneapolis and Summit Avenue in St. Paul. MPR’s Tim Nelson went with Millett to check out some of his favorites, and you can see the results here.

(My personal favorite is the home of “The Castle Jeweler” – an original White Castle restaurant – with turrets and all.)
