Known as America’s most livable city, St. Paul is the capital and second-most populous city in Minnesota. St. Paul is a city of neighborhoods, including well-known, historically significant neighborhoods such as Dayton’s Bluff, Swede Hollow, Payne-Phalen, Frogtown, Summit-University, Como Park, Hamline Midway, Saint Anthony Park, Union Park, Macalester-Groveland, and Highland Park. But more than simply an identity, St. Paul neighborhoods are formally organized into 17 City Districts to engage residents and collaborate with city government – one of the first cities in the nation to do so.
St. Paul is also known for its colorful, if not dubious, past.
The first settlement in what is now St. Paul was Pig’s Eye Landing,
a trading center where Pierre “Pig’s Eye” Parrant sold bootleg
whiskey to fellow squatters, Native Americans, and soldiers from
nearby Fort Snelling. Parrant set up his still and built a saloon
near the mouth of Fountain Cave located approximately 1/4 mile
southwest of the intersection of Randolph and Shepard Road in
In 1841, Lucien Galtier, a Roman Catholic missionary, built a log chapel near present-day Second Street and Cedar Street and dedicated it to the apostle Paul. Galtier persuaded the settlement to adopt the name Saint Paul in honor of the new chapel.
St. Paul became the capital of the newly formed Minnesota Territory in 1849. However, in 1857, the territorial legislature voted to move the capital to Saint Peter. At least that was the plan until Joe Rolette, a territorial legislator, stole the only physical copy of the approved bill and went into hiding; preventing the change from St. Paul. On May 11, 1858, Minnesota was admitted to the union as the thirty-second state, with Saint Paul as the capital. That year, more than 1,000 steamboats were in service at Saint Paul, making the city a gateway for settlers to the Minnesota frontier, the Dakota Territory, and points west.
Lawlessness and political corruption were the hallmarks of St Paul in the early 1900s. The collaboration between the St. Paul police department and gangsters began with the Layover Agreement in 1900. In exchange for protection, criminals agreed not to conduct any criminal activity within St. Paul’s city limits and to share a portion of the booty from crimes outside St Paul with the police. As a result, St. Paul was a safe refuge for gangsters including the likes of John Dillinger, Babyface Nelson, Al “Scarface” Capone; and the outlawed duo Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. In 1932, more than 20 percent of the nation’s bank robberies took place in Minnesota.
Today, St. Paul is a major education, health care, government, financial, and industrial center. St. Paul is home to nearly 30,000 businesses in a variety of industries, including medical, financial, retail, agriculture, packaged goods, energy, technology, and precision manufacturing.
