A $2 million expansion of Northfield's All Saints Episcopal Church to provide downtown gathering place

From Minnesota-

Mark Heiman and Rev. Gayle Marsh have imagined the possibilities of expanding All Saints Episcopal Church for years.

In fact, Heiman, who is the Senior Warden at the church that has stood tall on the corner of West 5th Street and Washington Street on the periphery of downtown Northfield since 1866, said that plans have been drawn up a couple of times only to be set aside.

The clergy and lay leadership at All Saints hopes the third time is a charm.

“As a congregation, we have reached a size where the spaces are no longer adequate,” Heiman said. “For two years, we’ve been imagining and planning, focusing on what kind of spaces to create.”
After bidding out for architectural services and also to decide on a construction firm, the leadership at the historic church has decided to keep it all local, opting to use SMSQ Architects and Northfield Construction Company.
