301 Pershing Ave




Dr. Kuhn

Architectural Style


Because of its modernistic form, unusual corner window (cf. the 1938 702 Center Ave. house by Altfillisch), glass block entry way, and its original flat roof, this house is often attributed to Charles Altfillisch. It was in fact built by Lars Seim (see 309 Pershing and 319 Pershing, below) for Dr. Kuhn as a combination residence and doctor’s office. The Decorah newspapers on a couple of occasions referred to it as an “ultra modern home,” and in a headline noted “Dr. Kuhn Building the Most Modern Home in Decorah.”
