Summit Hill Then And Now
Summit Hill is one of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods in St. Paul. Its history can be traced back to 1805, but it didn't really start to flourish until 1854 when the land went up for public auction. The area attracted many of the wealthy and prominent families of St. Paul at the time and the first mansion on Summit Avenue was built by James C. Burbank in 1862. Summit Hill quickly became known as the place to be for the wealthy, including lumber and railroad barons. Around the turn of the century, the area started to draw more middle-class families who settled in the southwestern part of the neighborhood. A few decades later, the streetcar line created more growth, and the housing turned more to apartments, rather than houses. Summit Hill looks much today liked it did in the twenties because there has been little major construction since. The one exception to that is that townhouses were built in response to the demand for more housing in the city.   (rev. 1/30/21)
