Minneapolis and Saint Paul Home Tour Highlights Neighborhood Living in Dayton’s Bluff
With the end of the long winter and the arrival of (slightly) warmer weather, thoughts turn to getting out of the house and exploring what’s happening in our neighborhoods. That is why spring is the perfect time for the annual Minneapolis and Saint Paul Home Tour. This year, the tour will be held on Saturday, April 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 27 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
During the home tour, residents in Saint Paul and Minneapolis open their homes to the public to showcase city living and the great things that our communities offer. The Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood, which is known for its beautiful and historic homes (including many from the Victorian era), always welcomes visitors to several homes on the tour. This year will be no exception, with several great Dayton’s Bluff residences open for touring.
One of the highlights this year will be an apartment in the former Mounds Park School building. This building was constructed in 1891 and is the oldest public school building in Saint Paul still on its original site. The creative reuse of this building is just one of many surprises Dayton’s Bluff has in store for you.
Once you’re in the neighborhood, check out the views of the city and the Mississippi River from one of the many parks or try dinner at one of our locally-owned restaurants. We guarantee that you’ll understand why City Pages named Dayton’s Bluff the Best Undiscovered Neighborhood in the Twin Cities and why several people who have toured Dayton’s Bluff have decided to make it their home.
