A Minneapolis block may hold a world record for churches
The four houses of worship in Northeast have long histories
August 22, 2023
On Twitter a Minneapolis-boosting account proclaimed an impressive fact: A block in Minneapolis, according to Guinness World Records, is the only block in the world with four churches. Google it, and you'll find a few more sources claiming the same thing.
You might think: Really? The world? More churches than a street in Rome, the home office? More than New York, with its long, densely packed blocks? Little old Minneapolis, world-beating church-having block champ?
But even if it's not a record-breaker, four churches in one block is remarkable. Especially since they're all still open.
