RICHARDSONIAN ROMANESQUE ARCHITECTURE
Examples in Dubuque once included CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL, demolished when its weathered stone weakened the building. Other examples include ST. LUKE'S UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, the DUBUQUE STAR BREWING COMPANY, and the DUBUQUE BREWING AND MALTING COMPANY. The Frank D. STOUT home at 1105 Locust, this city's only Richardsonian Romanesque home, was built for the lumber baron in 1890 at an estimated cost of over $75,000. It was later used as the official residence of the ARCHBISHOPS, a bed-and-breakfast inn, and finally a private home.
