Please inform a supervisor right away if any doors are unlocked or already propped open (that shouldn't be) when you arrive to work in the morning. If you cannot reach us at that moment, send one of us an email indicating which doors were unsecured.

Thank you!

Further Details...

Clarence Johnston - Minnesota's hidden-in-plain-sight architectural master. If you've lived in Minnesota for any length of time you've probably been in one of his buildings but you just didn't know it. From the 1880's to the 1930s, Clarence Johnston built all over the state of Minnesota. Everything from beautiful mansions on Summit Ave in St. Paul to tuberculosis sanitariums up north to Glensheen Estate to Stillwater Prison to the old Minnesota Historical Society building to Northrop Auditorium and on and on. Johnston truly shaped how Minnesota looks today.
