17 South Main Street Minot ND, by Bob Timm

Do You Have Any Historical Knowledge Of This Building?

Minot's Temple Building

I was walking around downtown Minot last week looking to snap a picture of an old or interesting building. This building located at 17 South Main Street stood out to me because of the interesting brickwork and the date, which I believe is 1883.

 

It’s a shame that much of the front of the building is “modernized” but I find the remaining brickwork amazing and intriguing. I also wish I could take the signs down and see what’s underneath. I’m sure the original name of the building is still there.

 17 S. Main St Minot ND

To me the building looks like it may have originally been some sort of temple, either religious or labor.

 Temple Bldg odd number   Devil

The top right cornerstone especially intrigued me with the year on it, as it was very hard to read. I was sure to zoom in as close as I could and I still am only guessing that the number is 83. But what else was I seeing… a little devil? I went back and took more shots so what you see is the best I’ve got. I used the simple “paint” program that has been on every windows program since Win 3.1 to enhance the little devil I’m seeing. Tell me, am I crazy?
