Biography/History"Fargo Cornice & Ornament Works, 1002 Main Avenue 1892. The Rusk Brothers, manufacturers of the Rusk Auto House (28), were guided in the design of their headquarters by the Columbian Exposition's revival of Classical forms and ornament. This was meant to be a building as well as an advertisement of their product's versatility: the entire exterior is covered with pressed metal. An eagle which once graced the corner was removed some years ago." - caption with image published in Fargo-Moorhead a guide to historic architecture, by Ronald Lanier Ramsey. 1975, p. 51.
