Biography/HistoryThe house at 921 13th Avenue N. was built in 1946, by N.D.A.C. English Professor Leonard Sackett and his wife Rose. Leonard Sackett tore down an old barn owned by Dr. G. W. Hunter. The barn was once part of the Martin Hector estate at 1103 Broadway. Using the lumber, Sackett built the house on his own, using plans drawn up by architect Allen Meinecke. Leonard Sackett lived in the house until his death in 1971. His wife continued to live in the house until about 1983.
