Then & Now: St. Anthony Pottery, 808-810 Marshall Northeast, Minneapolis. (1897/2013)


Established by Louis Kampff in August of 1857, St. Anthony Pottery was probably the earliest earthenware plant in Minnesota. This building was built in 1860, and was still being used as a residence by one of Kampff’s sons as recently as 1947. Most of the area now is a parking area for the many industrial buildings nearby.
