Historical Note

The architectural survey of Ramsey County was carried out in 1982-1983 under a plan by the St. Paul Heritage Preservation Commission and the Ramsey County Historical Society. The objective was to identify buildings of all types that were significant for the quality of their architecture. These structures could then be considered for eventual designation as local landmarks. Several hundred buildings were researched in detail, resulting in the survey data contained in this collection.
