Hi, has any one researched the location of the pre- WWI Duesenberg facility in St Paul MN? Does the place still exist, or is the address known? Living in the area, I woud like to drive over there and check it out.
Thanks, Joel Nystrom

My records show his shop was at 2654 University Ave, St Paul. It really was not a "factory" as most of the work was custom. The shop was for 1915-1917. I have seen some references to Duesenberg Motor Company starting in 1913 but I believe this is in Error. Can anyone provide any actual data to show they were in MN in 1913?

Fred lived at 74 Melbourne Ave in Minneapolis.

Thanks for the reply. :D

A little internet research at the county tax record department and veiwing the site on google earth shows that there is a large residential condominium project constructed there in 2006. <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: -->

Can you give us some feed back on if Fred's house still exists.

The address of the house is only 5 blocks from the shop, so that makes sense.
There is no 74 Melbourne at this time. There is a 75 Melbourne, a home built in 1905, and a 72 Melbourne which is a 2800 square foot apartment building reportedly built in 1915. I suppose if a guy went down to the courthouse and reserched the land records, it could be determined what happened to 74 Melbourne. Maybe the addresses were changed at some point??

If you go here http://www2.co.hennepin.mn.us/pins/addrsrch.jsp and enter the adresses, you can find a map of the lots and adresses.
