St. Paul is the capital of Minnesota and the second-largest city. It has a colorful history, complete with fur trading, mobsters, railroads, and streetcars - to name just a few interesting tidbits.

Besides the Native Americans, the French, German, Irish, and Swedes were some of the early immigrants who settled in St. Paul.  The original name of St. Paul was Pig's Eye (L'Oeil du Cochon in French) after Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parrant, and while it would have been amusing to have the capital of Minnesota be Pig's Eye, the name was duly changed around 1841.  When the Minnesota Territory was formalized in 1849, St. Paul was named the capital.

Because of its location, St. Paul quickly became a trade and transportation center.  In the olden days, that trade was mostly by steamboats on the rivers.  Later, railroads became the main mode of shipping things across the country.  These days, St. Paul still plays a heavy role in commerce.

St. Paul has always placed importance on higher education, as evidence by the numerous colleges and universities it supports.  A few of the prominent institutions of learning are:  Hamline University (1854), Macalester College (1885), The University of St. Thomas (1885), Concordia University (1893), William Mitchell College of Law (1900), and St. Catherine University (St. Kates) (1905).

The demographics of St. Paul has slowly changed as new immigrants have arrived - Czech, Polish, Mexican, and Hmong, to name a few.  Though the faces may change, the feeling of community remains.
