Central Lutheran Church Bell Tower – Minneapolis, MN

This project received a 2006 Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Award. The project consists of a 139 foot tall bell tower adjacent to the original church, sitting on an existing base designed to support it. The story of this project begins almost 90 years ago when the sanctuary and bell tower of Central Lutheran Church were designed by architects Sund and Dunham. The crashing stock market along with other funding issues kept the bell tower from being constructed with the rest of the church.
