Summary

Significance: Built in three phases in the 1880s, the Foster House is a contributing element in two National Register districts: the St. Anthony Falls Historic District and the Minneapolis Warehouse Historic District. Built by early Minneapolitan Stephen E. Foster to house his carriage works, the building was soon expanded to accommodate a hotel. Twentieth-century occupants have included a baking powder manufacturer, a sheet-metal works, and a variety of other small businesses. The history of the Foster House reflects the evolution of North First Street, once bustling with downtown commerce and wholesale activity, as the downtown core moved to the southeast and other businesses left the city or became obsolete.
