The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office was designed by William D. Gillespie and was built in 1909 by the Dinnie Brothers. Also known as Lake Region Heritage Center, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]

It is "a well-preserved example of Georgian Revival architecture" and is deemed significant "for its original long-term use as the official residence of the sheriffs of Ramsey County." From 1974 on it served as a cultural center.[2]
