Saint Matthew's School
Saint Matthew's School is one of the oldest schools in St. Paul, today serving a predominantly Hispanic community. It was built in 1902 to serve the growing German immigrant population in St. Paul. St. Mathew's was one of several schools to be built during the turn-of-the century period to educate German children and those of other ethnicities. The building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was designed by prominent St. Paul architect John Fischer in the Victorian style.
