Historic Saint Paul’s Mission

Historic Saint Paul is a nonprofit organization, established in 1998, with a mission to preserve and promote the cultural heritage, character, and vitality of Saint Paul neighborhoods.

We work in partnership with private property owners, community organizations, and public agencies to leverage Saint Paul’s cultural and historic resources as assets in economic development and community building initiatives.

Historic Saint Paul is the only nonprofit organization in Saint Paul focused on making historic preservation a key component of economic development, with an emphasis on under-resourced neighborhoods.
