Minnesota Preservation Awards Tour

The 2011 Minnesota Preservation Awards are right around the corner! What better way to celebrate than touring some of our past award sites? Join us on August 6th for our third PAM-o-rama of 2011 for an award winners tour around St. Paul’s Rice Park.

 

City House (Saint Paul Municipal Grain Terminal)

The Saint Paul Municipal Grain Terminal has a strong connection to the region’s agricultural heritage and the development of the upper Mississippi River for commercial navigation. After a lot of hard work and dedication put in by the City of Saint Paul and the Saint Paul Riverfront Corporation, what was once a grain terminal slated for demolition is now an iconic park pavilion on the Mississippi riverfront.

Landmark Center

Tour a building that the PAM staff gets the pleasure of enjoying every day! Tour the beautifully restored courtrooms where Minnesota’s most notorious gangsters and bank-robbers were tried.

St. Paul City Hall

Constructed during the great depression, St. Paul City Hall is an perfect example of 1930s Art Deco architecture. St. Paul City Hall is home to Carl Milles’ incredible statue: Vision of Peace. At 60 tons and 38 feet high statue, Vision of Peace is carved from white Mexican onyx and depicts Milles’ desire for world peace.
