Hello! My name is John Kistler in Minneapolis Minnesota. I am a lover of animals and old architecture. I am currently working on restoring an old Georgian style mansion in Downtown Minneapolis. I spend the summers in the gardens and the outside of the historic home with my dog, duck, and pigeon, and in the winters, I work on the inside with my same cadre of helpers. Historic Preservation is my passion and I believe that future generations will judge us more by what we preserve, than by what we create.
