Guides of the James J. Hill House lead historic tours that help visitors imagine family and servant life in the Gilded Age mansion. Hill, builder of the Great Northern Railway, owned this historic piece of Minnesota architecture on Summit. Completed in 1891, the red sandstone residence is well-known for its rugged stone exterior, massive scale, fine detail and ingenious mechanical systems. This is a popular destination for visitors and locals alike. For information on public walking tours, group walking tours, special events and field trips, visit the James J.
