Unfortunately there is not much recorded history concerning this property other than it was built on the corner of Minnesota and 45th Street by Dr. Harry Lukens as his home.  It was a charming cottage with a front porch and was located in a part of Dickinson that at one time was considered the “Downtown” area of the city.  Situated across from this house was a triangular parcel of land which became known as the “Village Green”.   A small room was attached to this building where he practiced medicine until the mid 1950’s.
