The Hopkins Historical Society has chosen the duplex at 117-119 8th Avenue North to receive historic homes status for 2008. This large two-story home was built in 1920 and features original Douglas Fir paneled doors and other natural woodwork. Owner Rick Brausen says he is surprised how the woodwork avoided the paint brush all these years!
