Kind of hidden and wedged in between newer buildings this is the oldest surviving commercial building in St. Paul and the first fire station. I have seen pictures of it from the 1880’s and back then it was black and white and the fire department used horses. Is someone seeking a demolition permit to tear this down?
On bates Avenue on the East side of St. Paul. The building was covered with siding. No one ever would have guessed that it is brick.
The beautiful Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse was designed by Long and Kees in 1888, is the main building used by the city of Minneapolis, as well as by Hennepin County, Minnesota. The building is fun to photograph and maybe one day I’ll spend the whole day doing just that.
This located on Walnut street just around the corner from the Alexander Ramsey House. The black railing is likely city code other than that I have to say they restoration is almost perfect.
This home is located in the Dayton’s bluff neighborhood on the St. Paul’s east side. The most beautiful homes in St. Paul can be found in this area. I just love the wrap around porch on this one.
On Maria Street in the historic Dayton’s bluff neighborhood also referred to as the East side. There are several houses in the area that need some work and some that are now as good as new thanks to the NSP program and the work of private investors.
