Public Safety Building (1930) Saint Paul, Minnesota

The neoclassical Saint Paul Public Safety Building (MHPR RA-SPC-5426) was designed by Francis X. Tewes (the City Architect) to house the city’s Health, Fire, and Police Departments. Following large format photographic documentation for the Minnesota Historic Property Record (MHPR) and The 106 Group, Ltd., the majority of the 50,000 square-foot building was demolished. A single remaining façade has been preserved as part of the new Penfield Hotel and Apartments.
