Saint Andrew’s Church at 1031 Como Avenue West was identified as a potentially eligible historic resource during the comprehensive Historic Sites Survey of Saint Paul and Ramsey County which was completed in 1983.
The church maintains a strong architectural presence in the Lake Como area, Warrendale neighborhood; it is also among Saint Paul’s most distinctive period revival style churches. St. Andrew’s Church was developed by Charles A. Hausler, who served as the first city architect for the City of St. Paul, and whose large and diverse body of work had an important impact on the city. The church also served a community of Hungarian immigrants and is associated with the Hungarian immigrant experience. The broader impact of the church was demonstrated by the five new congregations that were created from the area served by St. Andrew’s Church.
