To celebrate its 65th birthday, the Carlton County Historical Society invited a Minnesota architect to talk about the unique design of a Cloquet Avenue staple.

Byron Stadsvold spoke about the architectural design of the Frank Lloyd Wright gas station in Cloquet this afternoon. 

He said it was built in the 1950s and is a good example of Wright's work. 

"He definitely was someone who was doing everything in his own style, and he was also during the time frame, when so many Americans were just copying European-style architecture and him and his mentor Louis Sullivan were breaking away from that mold," Stadsvold said. 

Stadsvold said he's impressed with how well the current owners have kept things up.
