The John Lewis House at 412 Goodrich is a one-story, wood-framed, Greek Revival-style, pre-Civil War structure, built in 1856. It is believed to be one of the oldest  remaining residences in St Paul. It is currently threatened with demolition. 

Little Bohemia Neighborhood Association and Historic Saint Paul are collaborating to preserve and rehabilitate the property for future generations. Join us in this effort!

According to a new survey Millennials and Historic Preservation: A Deep Dive Into Attitudes and Values, nearly all (97 percent) of the nation’s largest and most diverse generation appreciate the value of historic preservation.

Tearing down old buildings won’t make our cities more affordable or inviting. It’s time to make better use of the buildings and spaces we already have.

Until around 2007, McMansions mostly borrowed the forms of traditional architecture, producing vinyl Georgian estates and foam Mediterranean villas.

But in the last 10 years, this has begun to change: McMansions are now being constructed in architectural styles from the 20th century, specifically modernism. We are witnessing the birth and the proliferation of modernist McMansions: McModerns.

Engine 10, Hose 10, & Station 10 (1995-2010)

A St. Paul fire house — the oldest active station in the state until recent years — is on the market.

Station 10 was used as a St. Paul fire house from 1885 to 2010 at 754 Randolph Ave., near West Seventh Street. This week, the city of St. Paul announced it’s soliciting offers from people who want to redevelop the decommissioned building.
