Historic Wesley Center

The Historic Wesley Center is located in downtown Minneapolis at the corner of Marquette and Grant. The beautiful structure was built in 1891 by the original Wesley Methodist Church congregation. Though that congregation no longer worships together at this location, this structure remains and is upon the National Registry for Historic Places. Prominent local architect Warren H. Hayes began designing the building in 1888, and construction was completed in 1892. The National Registry of Historic Places notes that the Historic Wesley Center is “the most costly, most elegant, best preserved, and most centrally located church designed by Warren H. Hayes within the city of Minneapolis.” The interior of the building is ornate and beautiful, with an expansive glass dome above the nave, dozens of stained glass windows lining the walls and beautifully preserved wood detail, leading up to the sweeping balcony. Wesley Center offers space for rental, including the historically preserved Sanctuary, Lillibridge Hall, Fireside Room and many other spaces.
