St. Paul's Co-Cathedral—Private
St. Paul’s Cathedral in St. Paul, MN was built in 1915 and is recognized as the national shrine to St. Paul the apostle. It is a magnificent feat of architecture by Emmanuel Louis Masqueray, a French Beaux-Arts architect who designed the church after churches like Sacre-Coeur. The church is a co-cathedral for the archdiocese of St. Paul along with St. Mary’s Basilica in Minneapolis, where EverGreene has also contributed to conservation efforts.
Decorated in the Beaux-Art style and fully consecrated in 1958, one can only imagine the splendor of the liturgical artistry program at St. Paul’s Cathedral. EverGreene was invited by the architects at Miller Dunwiddie to conduct an investigation into the conservation of St. Paul’s. Senior conservators at EverGreene took the time to document the condition and consult on preservation for historic art and architecture, stone, mosaics, metal, plaster, paint and decorative finishes, wood, leather, art glass, acoustical tile, and fine art.
