Daughters of the American Revolution

On Sept. 8, 2012, two Minnesota chapters of Daughters of the American Revolution will tour “Chez Mille Glace” located at 309 21st St. SW, Austin. Touring the home of Peter D. Plunkett will be Red Cedar Chapter of Austin and Monument Chapter of Edina.

The home was built in 1951 for S.P. Elam, an Austin jeweler. The Warren Plunkett family has occupied the home since 1959. The home represents Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian style of architecture and is one of the largest of its type.

Wright — born in 1867 in Richland Center, Wis., and who died in 1959 in Arizona — designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 500. Wright’s Usonian style home is his unique vision for urban planning in the U.S. Wright is recognized by the American Institute of Architects as “the greatest American architect of all time.”

Daughters of the American Revolution is a National lineage organization and is open to membership for any woman older than 18 who can trace her ancestry to a patriot in the American Revolution. Women who are interested in joining Red Cedar Chapter in Austin may contact Cheryl Potter at or at 433-8330 for more information.
