History of St. Paul
    St. Paul, Minnesota is the Ramsey County seat and the capital of Minnesota. It was first settled by Pierre Parrant in 1838, received its name from a little Catholic chapel built in 1841 under the direction of Father Lucian Galtier, who in the preceding year had come to Mendota, near Fort Snelling. The history of the building and naming of the chapel, with the adoption of the name for the village and city, was written in part as follows by Galtier in 1864, at the request of Bishop Thomas L. Grace.

    St. Paul was organized as a village or town November 1, 1849, and was incorporated as a city March 4, 1854, then having an area of 2,560 acres, or 4 square miles. Further large annexations over the years extended St. Paul to its present area, 55.44 square miles

   St. Paul is often called "the Saintly City"; Minneapolis similarly is "the Mill City" or "the Flour City"; and the two are very widely known as "the Twin Cities."

St. Paul Today
   There are many districts of St. Paul , namely Merriam Park, Riverview, and St. Anthony Park; and the railway stations of Hazel Park and Highwood. This city has numerous other residential or partially mercantile and manufacturing districts. Several districts designated as parks are wholly or partly occupied by residences, this being the case with each of the districts called parks in the following list.

   Dayton's Bluff, at the east side of the Mississippi in the southeast part of St. Paul, has a large residence district on the plateau extending backward from its top. The name commemorates Lyman Dayton, a former landowner there for whom a village and township in Hennepin County were named. On the edge of the southern and highest part of the bluff, in Mounds Park, is a series of seven large aboriginal mounds, 4 to 18 feet high, from which a magnificent prospect is obtained, overlooking the river and the central part of the city.

   Arlington Hills and Phalen Park are northeastern districts, the second being named from Phalen Lake and Creek, for Edward Phelan (whose name was variously spelled), one of his successive land claims, in the earliest years of St. Paul, having been on this creek.

   Como Park, the largest public park of the city, with adjoining residences, encloses Lake Como, named by Henry McKenty in 1856 for the widely famed Lake Como adjoining the south side of the Alps in Italy. He was born in Pennsylvania in 1821, settled in St. Paul at the age of 30 years, dealt largely in city lots and farmlands, and died in this city August 10, 1869.

   Lexington Park is a western central district, named from Lexington, Mass., where the first battle of the Revolutionary War was fought, April 19, 1775.

   Farther northwest and southwest, respectively, are the districts of Hamline and Macalester Park, having the Methodist Hamline University and the Presbyterian Macalester College, named in honor of Bishop Leonidas Lent Hamline (1797-1865) of Ohio, and Charles Macalester (1798-1873) of Philadelphia, a generous donor to this college.

   In and near Groveland Park, a district at the west side of the city, bordering on the Mississippi, are three large Catholic institutions, St. Paul Seminary, University of St. Thomas, and College of St. Catherine.

   St. Anthony Hill, often called simply the Hill District, comprises a large residential area on a broad plateau that was crossed by the earliest road leading from the central part of St. Paul to the Falls of St. Anthony and the city of this name, which in 1872 was united with Minneapolis.

   At Seven Corners, southwest from the business center of St. Paul, streets radiate in seven directions, with buildings on the intervening corners of the city blocks.
