6 Ramsey Professional Building in Saint Paul, Minnesota

Local architect Cass Gilbert is best remembered in St. Paul for designing the Minnesota State Capital. He gained national fame for designing two other capitals plus the Woolworth Building in New York and the United States Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. Often overlooked among his huge list of projects is the former German Bethlehem Presbyterian Church at the base of Ramey Hill. The church was finished in 1890 while Cass – then only 30 years old – was in partnership with James Knox Taylor. In 1916, it became the Gargoyle Club, an eatery and tavern for architects. Since the 1960s, the property has been a theatre and funeral home. Now this small gem of the Hill District is the Ramsey Professional Building. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
