A Dubuque icon since 1867, the former home of St. Mary’s Parish is once again a hub for personal growth, celebration, and community empowerment. Steeple Square is restoring economic prosperity, environmental integrity and social and cultural vibrancy to the downtown community.
The former church is becoming Dubuque’s most unique event space; the ground floor will host collaborative outreach and educational programs. The former school will be transformed into permanent supportive and market-rate housing. The rest of the campus will house other non-profit organizations and community gathering spaces. Renovations began in 2016.
