About St Paul
As the capital of Minnesota and the second largest city in the state, St Paul is a bustling city. The Louisiana Purchase opened the door for new settlers and expansion. As more and more people came to the area, Fort Snelling was built in 1819 after a successful land negotiation with the Dakota tribe. Over time, the area became a hot spot for trading. Eventually, the settlement developed into a city and was named the capital of the Minnesota Territory in 1849. St Paul quickly became the gateway for those exploring Minnesota or the Dakotas. Settlers, explorers, and missionaries all headed to the fort for protection and as a place to gather supplies.
Throughout the 1900’s, neighborhoods came and went. In the 1950’s and 1960’s especially, several urban renewal projects were put into play in order to revitalize certain neighborhoods. As I-94 was built, some neighborhoods were torn down in order to make way for new interstates or buildings. Eventually, small skyscrapers began to populate the landscape throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s such as Galtier Plaza, The Pointe of Saint Paul condominiums, and Wells Fargo Place.
Today, St Paul boasts a strong economy thanks to some very large companies that are headquartered locally. Companies such as Ecolab, 3M, and Securian Financial Group are just a few of the many large corporations that employ local Minnesotans.
