The Wellstone Center
Be Part of the Neighborhood House Experience
Completed in 2006, The Wellstone Center is a modern 93,000 square foot facility made of both new and recycled materials, featuring twenty different meeting and event spaces available for rent at competitive pricing. Located on Saint Paul’s historic West Side and minutes from downtown with free parking, the center offers a wide range of distinctive venues for any size or style of event, plus the flexibility of using your own caterer.
The Wellstone Center is a living memorial to Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife, Sheila, who tragically died in a plane crash in the fall of 2002, along with their daughter Marcia. Interim Senator Dean Barkley researched over eighty appropriations that Senator Wellstone had been working on prior to his death. Establishing a new facility for community building was one of them. Within one week from his initial inquiry to Neighborhood House, Congress authorized $10 million for The Paul and Sheila Wellstone Center for Community Building, which would become the new Neighborhood House headquarters, a $25 million project.
