Located adjacent to the Minneapolis Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis, Wesley United Methodist Church was built in 1891. Designed by Warren Howard Hayes and recognized as one of the finest and best-preserved buildings by this prominent ecclesiastical architect, Wesley was nevertheless added to the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota’s annual list of “Most Endangered Historic Places” in 2010.
Bob Mack, who has been working on the building for over 25 years, will take you on a rare excursion inside the building, including the attic area and its outstanding examples of late 19th-century building technology—both structural systems and heating/cooling systems.
