Preservation Alliance of Minnesota Honors the Basilica

The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM) has selected the Basilica of Saint Mary to receive an award for its preservation and restoration efforts of the Sacristy and Narthex.


The Minnesota Preservation Awards is PAM’s annual program that recognizes individuals, groups and projects throughout the state that demonstrate a commitment to preserving Minnesota’s history. The Basilica, along with other winners, will be honored at the annual Minnesota Preservation Gala on September 27th at Christ Lutheran Church in Minneapolis.  Learn more in the featured article in Finance & Commerce.


Since 1991, we have been providing services for the restoration, maintenance and overall improvements of the Basilica of Saint Mary.


The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota is the only statewide, private, non-profit organization advocating for the preservation of Minnesota’s historic resources. PAM was established in 1981 by citizens concerned about the loss of irreplaceable segments of our state’s heritage: structures, neighborhoods, community fabric.
