Highland Park Real Estate
West of Snelling Avenue and south of Randolph, one finds another St. Paul, much newer than the traditional neighborhoods west of the Historic Hills. There are a scattering of pioneer houses here, notably the late-1860s Davern House at 2275 Davern Street, but this is unequivocally a 20th century environment. When the College of St. Catherine was established here in 1911, the adjacent St. Paul Academy two years later, Highland Park was exurban/semi-rural in character.
Taking advantage of all the open farmland, St. Paul acquired some for Highland Park (the public open space, not the larger community sharing the name) and its golf course beginning in 1923, just when Ford Motor Company constructed its riverside plat. Subdivisions took off in the area, blocks of modest houses intended for Ford workers, while the curvy street patterns west of Snelling and south of Montreal betray the characteristic layouts of postwar subdivisions.
