Throughout Minnesota's history, places of worship have served as centers of both religious and social activity. They have also been safe havens and hospitals during times of disaster and conflict, schools for early residents and forums for political discussion and activism. Although more than 150 Minnesota churches are currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places (individually and as part of historic districts), few represent faiths other than Christian denominations. This small sampling features several houses of worship recognized for their historical or architectural significance.
