Well-known Minnesota architect Cass Gilbert spent much of his early career designing homes and other buildings around the White Bear area. Join the White Bear Lake Area Historical Society (WBLAHS) for this illustrated program as we discuss some of his early work. Some are still standing, while others have not survived or were never built.
Rheanna O’Brien is the Associate Director of the WBLAHS. O’Brien 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 makes her presentations engaging and informative.
