Our Work

Historic Saint Paul works to:

  • Improve neighborhoods by rehabilitating homes and commercial buildings in ways that are sensitive to their cultural and architectural context.
  • Build community pride by retaining and enhancing a sense of place and celebrating cultural heritage.
  • Leverage investment into Saint Paul’s under-resourced neighborhoods by providing technical support, design expertise, and project management services.

Cultural Heritage:
Historic Saint Paul promotes areas of cultural interest citywide and builds awareness of the economic and community-building impacts of preserving and leveraging St. Paul’s cultural resources.

Neighborhood Preservation:
Through its Restore Saint Paul loan program and other bricks-and-mortar initiatives Historic Saint Paul works directly with home and business owners in under-resourced neighborhoods to provide financing and technical support to improve their homes and commercial buildings.

Historic Saint Paul advocates for citywide public policies that protect and enhance St. Paul’s historic and cultural resources and engages project partners to identify historic assets, analyze reuse alternatives, and mobilize public and private support and resources for rehabilitation projects.
