The Green Parrot was a Decorah landmark, a major gathering place for people of all generations. Altfillisch’s original design, as the following photo demonstrates, was elegant and inviting. The original building was aluminum and perhaps stucco. The above near-contemporary photo of what was for many years called the “Pub” and is now called “Roscoe’s,” shows that the original building–shown below–still exists underneath the current painted wooden overlay.
