Thematic Nomination: Historic Resources of Highland

Abram M. Minier, a grandson of John Bayless, a founder of Highland, commissioned the construction of this Craftsman bungalow in 1916. Though the builder of the house is not known, it was built from a house plan by Gustav Stickley first published in the November 1909 issue of "The Craftsman" and later published as Cottage No. 78 in Stickley's 1912 catalogue "More Craftsman Homes." The catalogue estimated the construction of the house to be $5,000. There were some minor modifications between the published plans and the blueprints for this house. For example, the fireplace was constructed as brick rather than stone, and the interior plan was modified slightly to incorporate a small, screened porch on the rear elevation. The home otherwise contains all the signature Stickley designs including wood shingle siding, exposed rafter tails, a full-width front porch, heavy structural beams, built-in bookcases and seating, and Mission-style hardware. The Minier House was nominated as part of the "Historic Resources of Highland" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the area of architecture.
