John McDonald House, 56 Irvine Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota
(44.940805,-93.1015warning.png"44.940805.-93.1015" is not a number. )

This house was moved to its present location in 1978 from 362 Smith Avenue. John McDonald began construction on the house in 1871 and finished in 1873. He is also credited with the construction of the Murray-Lanpher House at 35 Irvine Park and the Spencer House at 39 Irvine Park (razed).

Interestingly, this is possibly the only house in the nation to receive a parking ticket. During its 1978 move from Smith Avenue to Irvine Park, the house had to sit in the street overnight. In the morning, the developer found a parking ticket affixed to the front door.
