Landmark Center, Saint Paul

4.5
#5 of 9 in Historic Sites in Saint Paul
Landmark Center was built in 1902 and originally served as the Federal Court House and Post office for the Upper Midwest. In the 1970s, a group of determined citizens saved the building from the wrecking ball and restored it to its previous grandeur. It was on the National Register of Historic Places and reopened to the public as Landmark Center in 1978. Today, Landmark Center serves as a cultural center for music, dance, theater, exhibitions, public forums, and hosts countless special events.

Owned by Ramsey County, Landmark Center is managed by Minnesota Landmarks, a not-for-profit organization. Landmark Center also houses Anita's Cafe, Landmarket Gift Shop, five gallery spaces, and a number of St. Paul's premier arts and culture organizations.

  • Was here for Irish Fest. Nice dance troupes, but the one with my granddaughter was the best. The building is historic with many plaques on the wall describing what went on here and many famous (and infamous) people who worked here or had a connection to the building. There are also many groups headquartered in here, like the Schubert Club, with displays. Unfortunately they were closed and locked up. I will have to come back during regular hours and not on a special event day.
  • Beautiful building inside and out! Mostly original fixtures. Great history Interesting museums on second floor but they don't open until noon and close early, ex-bankers?
