William Sauntry House and Recreation Hall

The William Sauntry House and Recreation Hall is a historic property in Stillwater, United States, consisting of a late-nineteenth-century house and a 1902 addition styled after a Moorish palace. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 for its local significance in the themes of architecture and industry, it was nominated for its association with prosperous local lumberman William Sauntry and for its fanciful recreation hall, one of Minnesota's best examples of a folly and a rare use of Moorish Revival architecture. Now in separate ownership, the recreation hall has been restored as a private home while the William Sauntry Mansion operates as a bed and breakfast; the rectangular form of the mansion is complicated with gables and hip roofed bays. It is Queen Anne in style, but has Eastlake Movement millwork, an Italianate tower, Gothic Revival details on the gables; the lower levels have horizontal siding. A large porch with Corinthian order columns wraps around the front of the building.

Aligned directly behind the mansion is the recreation hall. This rectangular addition was attached to the main building by an enclosed second-level walkway; the exterior is stucco with inlaid stones. The roof is hipped with wide eaves supported by triangular brackets. An entrance from the side street is topped by a gabled dormer featuring a Palladian window with Moorish details; the recreation hall once housed a ballroom, reception hall, bowling alley, swimming pool. The interior was richly carved and decorated with carved woodwork, double doors of leaded glass, Arabic inscriptions. William Sauntry was born in poverty around 1845 in Ireland; when Sauntry's father died a few years his mother moved the surviving family of seven to New Brunswick, Canada. Sauntry began working as a lumberjack, in the late 1860s he and several family members moved again to Stillwater, epicenter of the Upper Midwest lumber trade. Within five years, the hardworking and ambitious Sauntry was partner in a lumber company.

Soon he was part-owner of the St. Croix Log Boom and managing the local interests of Minnesota's leading lumber magnate Frederick Weyerhaeuser. Sauntry married Eunice Tozer, the daughter of a business partner, in 1881—around the same time he commissioned a house in Stillwater's North Hill neighborhood. A modest 40 by 22 feet, the house grew along with Sauntry's fortune. By this time Sauntry was estimated to be worth $2 million, a series of architectural modifications added rooms, towers and upper stories to the house until it comprised 28 rooms and 7,000 square feet. By 1889 Sauntry had added an outdoor tennis court; however his passion for physical activity and entertaining guests led him to commission a freestanding recreation hall behind the main house in 1902. Moreover, his fanciful nature decreed. Both Moorish Revival architecture and dedicated recreation halls had some precedence at the time, but were quite rare in Minnesota. Architect Benjamin Marshall of Chicago designed the hall. By the early 20th century, the forests of the Upper Midwest were logged out, the St. Croix Log Boom went out of business, Sauntry's attempts to invest in mining were not turning a profit.

On November 10, 1914, the 69-year-old lumberman left his Blair Flats apartment in Saint Paul and checked into a downtown hotel, where he shot himself in the head. Although Sauntry's fortunes were in some decline, his wife and other close associates were mystified by his abrupt suicide. Following Sauntry's death, the house and recreation hall were divided into separate properties. In 1920 the recreation hall was converted into a three-unit apartment by its new owner, who had the pool and bowling alley removed and the ceilings lowered. In 1999 new owners began restoring the hall while making it functional as a single-family home. Over the course of a decade they restored the ballroom and foyer to their original decor, complemented with appropriately exotic furniture; the main house was purchased by new owners in 1999, who made their own restorations and opened the property as a bed and breakfast.

Treaty of Roskilde

The Treaty of Roskilde was concluded on 26 February or 8 March 1658 during the Second Northern War between Frederick III of Denmark–Norway and Karl X Gustav of Sweden in the Danish city of Roskilde. After a devastating defeat, Denmark-Norway was forced to give up a third of its territory to save the rest, the ceded lands comprising Blekinge, Bohuslän, Scania and Trøndelag, as well as her claims to Halland. After the treaty entered into force, Swedish forces continued to campaign in the remainder of Denmark-Norway, but had to withdraw from the Danish isles and Trøndelag in face of a Danish-Norwegian-Dutch alliance; the Treaty of Copenhagen restored Bornholm to Denmark and Trøndelag to Norway in 1660, while the other provinces transferred in Roskilde remain Swedish. As the Northern Wars progressed, Charles X Gustav of Sweden crossed the frozen straits from Jutland and occupied the Danish island of Zealand, with the invasion beginning on 11 February 1658. A preliminary treaty, the Treaty of Taastrup, was signed on 18 February 1658 with the final treaty, the Treaty of Roskilde, signed on 26 February 1658.

Although Sweden invaded Romsdal in Western Norway, the local farmers defied the Swedish taxes and military conscription vigorously, the Swedish governor was forced to send a full company of soldiers, 50 cavalry besides, to collect taxes. The occupation was not successful; the treaty's conditions included: The immediate cession of the Danish province Scania to Sweden. The immediate cession of the Danish province Blekinge to Sweden; the immediate cession of the Danish province Halland, which under the terms of the Peace of Brömsebro, negotiated in 1645 was occupied by Sweden for a term of 30 years, to Sweden. The immediate cession of the Danish province of Bornholm to Sweden; the immediate cession of the Norwegian province of Bohuslän to Sweden. This secured for Sweden unrestricted access to western trade; the immediate cession of the Norwegian province of Trøndelag including Nordmøre and Romsdal, to Sweden. Danish renunciation of all anti-Swedish alliances. Danish prevention of any warships hostile to Sweden passing through the straits into the Baltic.

Restoration of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp to his estates. Danish payment for Swedish occupation forces costs. Danish provision of troops to serve Charles in his broader wars; the Swedish king was not content with his stunning victory, at the Swedish Council held at Gottorp on 7 July, Charles X Gustav resolved to wipe his inconvenient rival from the map of Europe. Without any warning, in defiance of international treaty, he ordered his troops to attack Denmark-Norway a second time. There followed an attack on the capital Copenhagen, whose residents defended themselves with help from the Dutch, who honored their 1649 treaty to defend Denmark against unprovoked invasion by sending an expeditionary fleet and army, defeating the Swedish fleet in the Battle of the Sound and relieving the capital, his army trapped at Landskrona and isolated on the Danish islands by superior Danish and Dutch forces under Vice-Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, Charles was forced to withdraw in 1659. Meanwhile, Norwegian forces succeeded in expelling the Swedish occupiers from Trøndelag.

The resulting Treaty of Copenhagen in 1660 restored Trøndelag to Norway, the island of Bornholm to Denmark. The relinquishment of Trøndelag by the Treaty of Copenhagen reflects strong local resistance to the Swedish occupation. Although the Swedish invasion had been welcomed, or at least not resisted, the Swedes issued conscription orders in Trøndelag and forced 2000 men and young boys down to 15 years of age to join the Swedish armies fighting in Poland and Brandenburg. King Carl X Gustav was afraid that the Trønders would rise against their Swedish occupiers, thought it wise to keep a large part of the men away. Only about one third of the men returned to their homes; some of them were forced to settle in the Swedish province of Estonia, as the Swedes thought it would be easier to rule the Trønders there. Many of Trøndelag's men were in the Dano-Norwegian army and navy, so the Swedish-forced conscription nearly emptied Trøndelag of males; the result was devastating, as the farms were left without enough hands to harvest the fields, famine struck the region.

Some local historians of Trøndelag have termed this the genocide of the Trønders. The few months of experience with Swedish taxation and conscription left such bitter sentiments that it served to strengthen Dano-Norwegian unity and patriotism, making resistance to Swedish invasions of Denmark-Norway stronger over the next 80 years. According to the ninth article of the Treaty of Roskilde, which ceded Scania, the inhabitants of the Scanian lands were assured of their privileges, old laws and customs; however the territories were integrated in the Swedish realm. The nobility was soon amalgamated with the Swedish nobility and introduced into the Swedish House of Lords with the same rights and privileges as the original Swedish noble families; the provincial Scanian Law was replaced by the national Swedish law in 1683. In the same year the national Danish law came into force in Denmark replacing provincial laws there; the Swedish Church Ordinance was introduced in 1686.
