Living in St. Paul
St. Paul became the capital of the Minnesota Territory in 1849. Before its promotion, however, it underwent a name change. That was a good call as as its original moniker was "Pig's Eye." When the legislature voted to move the capital to Saint Peter a decade later, St. Paul did what it had to do to stay on top. A territorial legislator stole the paper authorizing the switch and managed to block to the change. As the country grew, settlers heading for the Dakota Territory unloaded their boats here, earning St. Paul the nickname "The Last City of the East."
These days, St. Paul offers residents a fascinating range of neighborhoods to explore. Some call the city, "fifteen small towns with one mayor." Check out the historical East Side areas of Dayton's Bluff and Swede Hollow. The Central Saint Anthony Park neighborhood is nestled between universities and a good place to grab some local lunch. To wet your whistle, try West Seventh.
