Summit Avenue Walking Tour Podcast

We'd like to introduce you to a St. Paul landmark and one of its crown jewels. Extending nearly 5 miles along Summit Avenue, is the longest remaining stretch of residential Victorian architecture in the United States. This includes the 1891 mansion of James J. Hill, founder of the Great Northern Railroad, as well as the governor's mansion.

Please note: If you decide to go on a real tour, most residences listed here are private homes and are not open to the public.
