Saint Paul Minnesota

We have lived in the Daytons Bluff neighborhood in Saint Paul Minnesota for almost 25 years. Though much of my early life was spent in the small towns of Minnesota, I have come to love and appreciate this city and what if offers.

Mark Twin was impressed on his visit to St. Paul in 1882. He later wrote his classic Life on the Mississippi and stated: "St. Paul is a wonderful town. It is put together in solid blocks of of honest brick and stone and has the air of intending to stay that way." It has!

All that brick and stone, and other materials, created some of the most beautiful, and significant, buildings in Minnesota. You can explore Minnesota's history and it's present attractions by visiting these wonderful edifices.

St. Paul is the cultural and historic jewel of the Twin Cities. The "crown jewel" of the city is the State Capitol building, designed in 1895 by Cass Gilbert. The elaborate architectural masterpiece features the world's largest unsupported marble dome and the gilded statue Quadriga(The Progress of the State)over the main entrance.

Vision of Peace in Saint Paul Minnesota

The building that houses the Saint Paul City Hall and Ramsey County Courthouse is an art deco masterpiece. Memorial Hall features blue Belgian marble, bronze trim and a mirrored ceiling.
