The Ignatius Eckert House is an 1868 home, located at 724 Ashland Street, Hastings in the U.S. state of Minnesota. The wooden Italian Village-style house features a hipped roof with cupola on top. It is an example of the "Country Homes" style of Andrew Jackson Downing, a pioneer in American landscape architecture. The original owner, Reverend G. W. T. Wright was a minister at the nearby Hastings Methodist Episcopal Church. Retired farmer, Ignatius Eckert bought the home ca. 1909.[2][3]
