15. 401 16th St NE (Dr. Byron McKeeby)

The iconic male model for the farmer with the pitchfork in Grant Wood’s “American Gothic” (1930) lived here from 1907 to 1910 after previously residing on the 300 block of 16th St. NE. In later years, “Doc” McKeeby lived at 1828 Blake Blvd. SE , 2649 Meadowbrook Dr. SE, and, in the 1940’s, back in Mound View at 1512 First Ave. NE.
