Hamm’s Brewery
Saint Paul, MN

Conclusion & Gallery

As I write, preparations are being made to demolish another Stock House, one of three buildings on the South Campus scheduled to fall before there is more talk of reuse. The second-oldest building in the complex, the 1883 Power House, is also expected to fall. Plans for the future of Hamm’s include, (a) a beautiful orange-brick redeveloped turn-of-the-century brewhouse, or (b) an empty abandoned lot.

Your call, St. Paul.
