"James J. Hill House" Minnesota Things to Do Tip by gwendy0925

Minnesota Things to Do: 133 reviews and 150 photos


One of the biggest houses in the state. This was the home of railroad tycoon James J. Hill. The house itself has some of the most spectacular woodwork in the state. If you've ever seen the movie The Haunting some things in this house might be familiar to you.

While you're on Summit Hill be sure to drive the length of it. All of the houses are worth taking a look at! The hill itself has beautiful views of Downtown St. Paul and the Mississippi.

Address: Summit Hill in St. Paul (near the Cathedral)
