With the upswing in house construction between 1939 and 1942 the almost universally proposed form was the Colonial and specifically the eighteenth-century New England Colonial of the two-story variety or the single-floor Cape Cod cottage. Minneapolis and St. Paul suburbs such as Edina and Highland Park acquired numerous examples of these white clapboard, stone, and shingle Period houses. In the postwar years the differences between the urban center of the Twin Cities (and the smaller one at Rochester) and the rest of the state became greater.

Hewitt and Brown, Razed. Photo: Minneapolis Public Library. 15 Introduction Bridges, new roads, and parks were built from the northern lakes to the southeastern cities of Red Wing and Winona. New post offices, schools, and armories were constructed in cities of all sizes. In style these were normally PWA Moderne (that is, classical with a nod toward the Moderne). Without exception these public buildings were beautifully crafted; they made use of native materials, and in many cases they were embellished with Art (relief sculptures and murals) which emanated from the Federal Arts Project.

A far-reaching transformation of Minneapolis has occurred with the emergence of the urban freeway system. In the early 1930s a plan to construct a belt-line highway around the Twin Cities was initiated. Part of the plan materialized before World War II with the construction of Highway 100 below the southern boundary of Minneapolis and west of the city through Edina, St. Louis Park, Golden Valley, and Robbinsdale. But the main period of freeway building occurred in the 1960s. By 1967 Highway 35W plowed through the residential area of Minneapolis, and between 1964 and 1968 Highway 94 was built just south of the downtown area.
