St Paul's Historic Crocus Hill & Grand Avenue Neighborhoods

In most big American cities there is a favored direction from Downtown—where the most fashionable neighborhoods lie. This direction is north in Chicago, northeast in Louisville, and southwest in Minneapolis, for example. In St. Paul, the favored direction is west. That is not at all surprising, since higher ground or some other visual amenity like lakes are valued in cities and towns alike, and the looming bluffs just west of Downtown offered not just topographical eminence, but spectacular panoramic views across the growing city.

So the hilltops west of Downtown were staked out by St. Paul's First Citizens as early as 1858, the year that Minnesota became a state and the year when rudimentary town government was established in Minneapolis. West was firmly established as the desirable direction after James J. Hill built his Summit Avenue mansion in 1889-1891. Thus the marvelous enclaves of landmark houses adjacent to the Summit Avenue corridor, and the eventual westward expansion of "good" neighborhoods all the way to the Mississippi River were really inevitable.

Moreover, this area offers an engaging mix of building types: single-family houses and mansions, townhouses and residential hotels, commercial buildings and churches. Here again one finds unusual variety for such a relatively small area, from the massive St. Paul Cathedral at the head of Summit Avenue to the architecturally refined House of Hope Presbyterian Church at Summit and Oxford, to Cass Gilbert's diminutive St. Clement's Episcopal Church at Portland Avenue and Milton Street.
