Cathedral Hill - Saint Paul, MN
About Cathedral Hill
St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill is one of the most established and storied communities in all of the Twin Cities. Bordered by Summit Avenue to the south, Dale Street to the west, Marshall Avenue to the north and John Ireland Boulevard to the east, the historic area has been exquisitely preserved, displaying fantastic architecture of yesteryear while moving forward into the 21st Century. And although Cathedral Hill is old – born in the 1870s – there is nothing old about it. Charming stores and iconic restaurants line the streets, and it blends beautifully with nearby neighborhoods like Ramsey Hill, Crocus Hill and the Grand Avenue area. And then there are the views. Remember, the name is Cathedral Hill, so being perched up allows for some incredible and sweeping views below of the river bluff, downtown St. Paul, and of course, the beautiful Cathedral after which the area gets its name.
Since its beginning, artists, writers, academics and more have flocked to this neighborhood, including F. Scott Fitzgerald who spent time writing at various homes and restaurants that exist here today. A perfect blend of the past and the present, Cathedral Hill honors its history while keeping up to date with modern times and trends.
