"Frankson, who acquired his wealth in the real eatate business, came to St. Paul from Filmore County in 1914 after serving two terms in the state legislature. Frankson also served as Minnesota's Lieutenant Governor from 1917 to 1921. In 1922, Frankson returned to his real estate business in St. Paul. He lived and worked in St. Paul until his death, the result of a fall from a tree, in 1939. According to information supplied by a granddaughter of Frankson, he and his family lived in the house from 1914-1926. Thomas and Hannah had several children, two of whom are still living. Frankson apparently donated a herd of buffalo and deer to Como park to begin Como Zoo. He owned much land in the area, and donated the land on which Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corps Center now stands to Bethel College" (Historic Sites Survey)
