Cass Gilbert's White Bear Cottages
Rheanna O’Brien is the Associate Director of the White Bear Lake Area Historical Society. She has conducted extensive research on Cass Gilbert and his local connections, including a fascinating trip to the Library of Congress where a collection of Gilbert manuscripts are held. Her prior experience as an educator make her presentations engaging and informative.
Well-known Minnesota architect Cass Gilbert spent much of his early career designing homes and other buildings around the White Bear area. Rheanna O’Brien of the White Bear Lake Area Hustorical Society will present an illustrated program as we discuss his early work. Some of those buildings still stand, while others have either not survived or were never built.
