Summary

Significance: Built in 1930 from a design by municipal staff architect James C. Niemeyer, the Merriam Park Branch Public Library is a fine local example of the Collegiate Gothic style of architecture. During its 60 years of service, the library became one of the most heavily used branch libraries in Saint Paul. In recognition of its historical importance, the building was designated "a site of major significance" by the Saint Paul Heritage Preservation Commission in 1983.
