Stained Glass Restoration for Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Bloomington

Minneapolis/St. Paul are known as the Twin Cities. The pair are beautiful US historical places and the most populous in Minnesota. These cities have a long history of marketplaces for timber, becoming, at one point, the flour milling capital of the world. These thriving metropolises encompass Bloomington and have an eclectic mix of cultures, homes, and religions and. This mixing pot has led to the building of many different denominations of religious cultures. You will find in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Bloomington have a lot of historical churches of every denomination Baptist, Catholic Methodist, Mormon, and Jewish too! Because of this one can easily discover synagogues, chapels, churches, and cathedrals across our beautiful city. From Meadowland Park over to Waite Park and even over in Lake Edna, amazing churches are simply part of the Minneapolis/St. Paul scenery. One of the most stunning parts about these houses of worship is the historical stained glass they hold. It is incredibly old and lovely art that has been used as a way to mark time and tell the area’s religious story–through each church’s experience. And, as Minneapolis/St. Paul and even the Bloomington area has transformed throughout the years–so have the church stained glass styles and depictions. Most of the stained glass in Minneapolis is now antique. This means it was made over 80 years ago, at the beginning of the last century. As the Twin Cities grew and thrived–so too did its churches and congregants and stained glass. These windows are thus historical treasures and serve as a reminder of the area’s glorious past. As such a huge part of this area’s history and culture, preserving the church stained glass here is a critical way to not only preserve Minneapolis/St. Paul’s church history but the amazing history of this area too But, since stained glass typically lasts 80-100 years before needing restoration–much of the Minneapolis area’s stained glass definitely needs to be refurbished soon or be lost to history.
