Hamline Midway is a small, but diverse community that prides itself on being walkable and engaged with each other and the community. It's mostly residential with light retail sprinkled alongside the major routes of Snelling and University.
Hamline University is the oldest university in Minnesota. It started in Red Wing, Minnesota, and then moved to Hamline in 1880. It's still a well-respected university today.
Hamline Midway has an eye toward the future in terms of development. A private park was torn out and is being replaced with an affordable housing complex in conjunction with the professional soccer stadium being developed nearby.
Hamline Midway History
Hamline Midway was first Hamline Village 150 years ago. It was surrounded by dirt trails, farms, and wetlands. In 1880, Hamline University came to Hamline Village and over the next twenty years, the natural surroundings were replaced with houses, streets, a fire hall, a post office, and other amenities of the modern world. With that, Hamline Village was gone, and Hamline Midway came into existence.
There's not much known about the history of Hamline Midway, but today, the city is not a big one, and it's diverse in many ways. There is a real feeling of community, and the residents are enthusiastic supporters of the school, the arts, and each other.
Green / Environmental
Saint Paul has very little in environmental policies. Introduced in 2020, they are asking large buildings to monitor water and energy usage for benchmarking purposes. That's about it.
