A Landmark Property
...with a storied history
Every nun has a past
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet not only lived and taught in this Beaux-Arts landmark, they built it. And under the guidance of Mother Celestine Howard, St. Agatha’s Conservatory of Music and Art became Minnesota’s premier fine arts academy.
A convent in the sky
Founded in 1884, St. Agatha’s grew steadily, prompting the Order to construct a facility that, upon its completion in 1909, accommodated several hundred students and on its upper floors housed the nuns. Among the copper-corniced structure’s distinguishing features were a rare exterior, curving double staircase leading to the main entrance, and a sixth-floor loggia providing open-air recreational space for the sisters.
Angels in the architecture
At its peak, St. Agatha’s had 1,100 students. Along with offices, the first floor housed parlors, studies, a library and infirmary. Art classrooms and a chapel occupied the second level, and the upper floors were used for the convent. Among the artwork that adorned St. Agatha’s were replicas of Renaissance masterpieces painted by the sisters during their studies abroad.
A new era begins
After St. Agatha’s Conservatory closed in 1962, the building housed offices as well as classroom and administrative facilities for the McNally School of Music. In 2017, Rebound Hospitality purchased this National Historic Landmark property and set about restoring the structure to its original glory.
