Brookings, South Dakota

The E.E. Haugen Residence is an excellent local example of the Colonial Revival style of architecture, which was used for homes built in the U.S. during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The grand home, built in 1904, was one of the early landmarks in Brookings and was featured in an early 20th-century promotional booklet for the town. Engbret E. Haugen, who built and owned a local grocery store, designed the house based on one featured in an ad that appeared in The Woman’s Home Companion between 1898 and 1904. Because of its iconic local appeal, the E. E. Haugen Residence was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on March 1, 2010. The house is a symmetrical, two-story house with a rectangular plan and is currently privately owned.
