Michael Milnes is a physical therapist whose practice is in Rochester, MN. He earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Minnesota in St. Paul.
He is a lifelong Minnesotan, born and raised in the town of Red Wing, a small town situated on the Mississippi River. He has been in Rochester since completing his education and getting his license. His practice is located in an old Victorian house in the city’s historic district; he and his wife make their home in a second Victorian about six blocks away.
“Both houses are quite spectacular,” Michael Milnes says. His wife is a member of the local Historic Preservation Society, which works to save viable old houses from the wrecking ball. “We think of them as monuments,” Michael says. “They need to be re-purposed somehow.”
That determination to save older homes is what led him to set up his practice in its current location, and to the decision to buy the second Victorian nearby. “I feel a huge obligation to protect these old houses,” Michael Milnes says of his and similar homes in Rochester MN. “They are like living history.”
