Serenus Colburn

Serenus Milo Colburn was an architect who worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota during the Golden Age of Flour Producing. Born in Ansonia, Connecticut on October 12, 1871, Colburn eventually came to work as head draftsman under William Channing Whitney in 1891. He left his position there in 1899 to work with Frederick Kees in the newly formed architectural firm Kees and Colburn.

In 1921, after more than 20 years of working together, the firm disbanded. Colburn went on to work with Ernest Forsell until his death on January 13, 1927.
