The History

Construction on City House began in 1927, and today it stands as an important reminder of Saint Paul's history as a Mississippi River port city. Formerly known as the Saint Paul Municipal Elevator and Sackhouse, City House stands as a reminder of Saint Paul's history as a port city, the history of grain marketing in the Twin Cities, the Midwest and the nation, and the rivalry between St. Paul and Minneapolis.
