This building is still standing. It’s in disrepair but plans are underway by the St. Paul Parks and Recreation department to restore and re-use the building. It was designed by Clarence “Cap” Wigington, along with dozens of other New Deal-era park buildings in the City of St. Paul. He was the country’s first African-American municipal architect.
