One of the nation's best preserved Victorian-era homes, Saint Paul's Alexander Ramsey House offers a glimpse into family and servant life in the 1870s. The Alexander Ramsey House is a popular destination for educational field trips. Students see and hear what growing up was like for Alexander Ramsey's grandchildren. Guides tell stories based on the family’s letters, diaries, and photographs. Each room is decorated to reflect the years from 1872-1900. Students take a tour with expert costumed guides and learn how their lives compare to the Ramsey family and servants. Students also sample a cookie prepared in a wood-burning stove while learning how the Ramsey's up-to-date kitchen operated. Call 651-296-8760 for more information on group tours.
