Minto (1921), 821 Saginaw St. S, (NR)

The second of the Minto family homes, this bungalow represents a change in style and comfort for the second generation of this pioneer Salem family. It included the finest interior details popular in the 1920s: fireplace in living room, built-in dining room cabinets, a music room. Douglas Minto lived here until the third family home, next door to the north, was built five years after this one. See photograph of this house in 1991.(SCAN)
