27 Crocus Place, also known as the J.M. Carlson House, was a 1902 Queen Anne style timber-frame house in Saint Paul in the U.S. state of Minnesota. It was a contributing property to the Historic Hill District.
Despite historic preservation efforts by the city and neighbors, a court approved its demolition in 2015. The final owners of the house, Fred and Renee Pritzker, had it demolished to build a new residence for their adult son, who has Angelman syndrome. In the settlement with the city, they were required to document the historic structure before it was destroyed.
