Woodbury Fisk HouseEdit profile
The Woodbury Fisk House (also known as Yarmolovich residence and the John A. Armstrong House) is a large home in the Marcy Holmes neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. A native of Maine, John A. Armstrong came to Saint Anthony via the California gold rush, using his capital to build a lumbering operation in the Rum River valley. He also became sheriff of Hennepin County in 1860, the year in which this house was probably begun. Woodbury Fisk later obtained the home. He ran a hardware business serving the lumber trade in the early years of Saint Anthony. He was a partner in the hardware firm of Cross, Pillsbury & Fisk with George P. Cross and John Sargent Pillsbury, his brother-in-law. He later joined Pillsbury in the flour milling business.
