Holman Field Administration Building – St. Paul MN

Description

The Holman Field Administration Building at St. Paul Downtown Airport in St. Paul, Minnesota was constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).

National Register of Historic Places Registration Form:

“The Holman Field Administration Building is significant under criterion C as one of the most accomplished works of Clarence Wesley Wigington, the first Black architect for the City of St. Paul. The building is also significant under criterion A as an important WPA project completed in cooperation with the City of St. Paul, and as well-preserved example of the Moderne style. Wigington’s career as an architect with the City spanned 34 years and during that time he designed many prominent public buildings that have had a lasting impact on the city landscape. Because his career spanned the New Deal years, many of those designs are associated with the Works Progress Administration.”
