Friday Photo: Two Views of Minneapolis’ Historic Churches

Acting on a suggestion from Matt Brillhart, here are two noteworthy views of Minneapolis two most beautiful and historic churches, the Basilica and the Hennepin United Methodist Church.

The former is from Andy Sturdevant’s recent column in Minnpost, and the latter (I think) is from my friend Peter (though I cannot quite recall).

    Most beautiful? Most historic? Need a little clarification on that language; and a tree softened photo of St. Mark’s Episcopal.

    Very good, but don’t forget the little Norske Mindekyrkan in the Phillips neighborhood, certainly quite historic.

    Excuse my spelling; should be Den Norske Mindekirken (the Norwegian Memorial Church).
