Landmark Center, Saint Paul

4.4
#4 of 7 in Historic Sites in Saint Paul
Landmark Center was built in 1902 and originally served as the Federal Court House and Post office for the Upper Midwest. In the 1970s, a group of determined citizens saved the building from the wrecking ball and restored it to its previous grandeur. It was on the National Register of Historic Places and reopened to the public as Landmark Center in 1978. Today, Landmark Center serves as a cultural center for music, dance, theater, exhibitions, public forums, and hosts countless special events.

Owned by Ramsey County, Landmark Center is managed by Minnesota Landmarks, a not-for-profit organization. Landmark Center also houses Anita's Cafe, Landmarket Gift Shop, five gallery spaces, and a number of St. Paul's premier arts and culture organizations.

  • For those looking at Landmark Center for a wedding venue- this place is amazing! As a wedding photographer, I LOVE all of the places in this venue and around the venue for photo ops. Not only is it a beautiful space, it's also very versatile. I have seen a few weddings here and I'm always blown away with how many different ways it can be decorated and laid out for both ceremony and/or reception! If you're looking for a wonderful, historic place to say "I do"- I highly recommend checking out Landmark Center!!
  • STUNNING!!! The Landmark Center was the perfect venue for our "winter in the castle" wedding. The venue itself is gorgeous!! The history of the building, the architecture, and the surrounding area made this venue a slam dunk for us! Betsy, Hilary, and the rest of the staff at the Landmark Center made planning our big day so easy. They were fairly accommodating to requests and changes and were very professional through the whole process. They did such a wonderful job setting up for the big day and were very helpful when it came to moving/adjusting things during the day of. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking for a gorgeous, classy, and well maintained venue!! This venue and it's staff will not disappoint!!
  • This is a gorgeous building. It has a lot of history, and plenty of exhibits and signs explaining the history. It's definitely worth stopping in.
  • Beautiful historic building with an atrium perfect for classy events and big acoustics. Some tasteful historical exhibits. Nice staff. Parking is a pain in the arse though
  • An absolute gem! So glad this historic and beautiful building was preserved and is used for worthwhile events today.
