endicott building signs

The Endicott is a beautiful old office building in downtown St. Paul, designed by Cass Gilbert and built about 1890. It looks like it was restored in the 90s, perhaps, and until fairly recently housed a post office and a couple other businesses. There is a beautiful old shopping arcade on the main floor, and a curved glass ceiling in the entrance hallway. The whole building has been closed up for a couple years now, I think, along with the adjacent Pioneer Press building. Don’t know why they were closed up. They are beautiful and historic old buildings. There was a classic diner in the Pioneer Press building that was shut down when they closed the buildings.
