The 5 splendiferous Churches of Minnesota

Although Minnesota is ranked among the highest in the standard of living, education, and wealth within the nation, what I find more interesting is the plethora of splendiferous churches they have within the borders of the North Star State. There are too many to choose from but, we’ve compiled our favorites list :

The 5 splendiferous Churches of Minnesota

5. Church of St. Columba, St. Paul – This church was erected in 1950, but its parish has its origins in 1914. Michael Casey contracted the formulation of the church whose stylish blend of Art Deco and French influence is reflected in its architecture.

4. Lakewood Memorial Chapel, Minneapolis – Originally constructed in 1910, this chapel is located within the Lakewood Cemetary of the south end of Uptown. It is patterned after the architecture of Istanbul and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

3. Basilica of St. Mary, Minneapolis – In the early 1900’s the first Basilica was founded in the nation and established on its own block. This beautiful landmark is co-cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Paul.

2. Church of the Sacred Heart, Freeport – This church was first constructed in 1882 as a wooden structure. This church may be small, but its resilience and history have it listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

1. Cathedral of St. Paul, St. Paul –The Roman Catholic cathedral open their doors in 1915 and patterned it’s classical style and structure after the unique themes of French churches. It’s the third largest church in the nation.
