Ward 6 Restaurant owner Eric Foster’s home at 761 E. 3rd St. was a popular stop on the Dayton’s Bluff portion of the Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour, with more than 700 visitors in the two days open, April 25-26. Built in 1885, the Queen Anne Victorian style home’s owners and contractors re-created a more historically accurate facade for the home. Inside, the first floor was kept formal, but the second floor was designed to be more contemporary and includes two custom-remodeled bathrooms. (Photo courtesy
