In May, my daughter will be graduating from university in St. Paul, MN. I've been there a few times over the last four years, but when I go out for the ceremony it will likely be the last time I am near the Twin Cities for many more years. I'd like to take the opportunity to visit some location associated with Dave Arneson and pay homage.
Unlike the Gygax memorial, as far as I know, there is no public site associated with Arneson. If he has a physical grave1, its location is not publicly listed. I want to be respectful of the privacy of his remaining family (or unrelated owners), so something like a curbside visit outside a former place of residence would be fine.
"Secrets of Blackmoor: The True History of Dungeons & Dragons" shows an image from the outside of his parents' home, in the basement of which his gaming group met in his youth, but as I recall does not list the address.
His daughter has said "No matter what house we lived in, our entire basement was always devoted to gaming," implying that there might be several possible houses in the St. Paul area, although she might also have been referring to when he lived in California (I expect she was already out of the house by the time he lived in Florida).
I haven't seen any indication that there was a gaming club when Arneson attended the University of Minnesota or some place that he might have played on-campus.
Any ideas for, and specific locations of, suitably significant sites which would be respectful and appropriate to visit would be appreciated.
