Lutheran St. Petri Kirche/1894.’ The brick building has a 1922 addition on the north elevation. This brick church building features a bell tower with spire, two smaller towers at the corners, and stained-glass windows. This church building is recommended for local designation under Criterion 1, as a good example of a late-nineteenth century church constructed in North Minneapolis to serve its growing ethnic population.” 1
