St. Paul's Episcopal Church was the first church building in Duluth, a wooden structure located at Lake Avenue and Second street downtown. and the first service was held on Christmas Day 1869. In 1911 the congregation announced their desire to erect a new church building in it's present location at 1710 East Superior Street. The New York City architect firm of Cram, Goodhue and Ferguson designed the new church in a Gothic Revival style; similar to Canterbury Cathedral in England. It was crafted of local stone with beautiful stained glass, slate roof and limestone trim. In 1998 a $1.35 million renovation project was completed.
