Overview

Landmark Center was originally known as the Federal Courts building.  When it was completed in 1902, the building was home to the Federal Courts, the Post Office, and many other government offices.  The building has a rich and fascinating history.  

After  these government agencies moved to bigger places, the building fell into disrepair and  was in danger of being torn down.  In 1972, a group of concerned citizens lovingly restored the building to its former grandeur.  The building reopened in 1978.  Now it is a cultural center for St. Paul, hosting events and agencies dedicated to music, dance, art, and public forums.
