Saint Paul's North End includes neighborhood restaurants, extensive trails, historic Oakland Cemetery and the Minnesota State Capitol - an architectural icon.
The North End has a rich labor history dating back to the early 1900s, when many European immigrants moved to the Eastern neighborhoods of Saint Paul. Many of the neighborhood's businesses and restaurants can be found on the main road known as Rice Street, affectionately named after famous Minnesota politician Henry M. Rice.
The North End holds the Minnesota State Capitol Building at its edge and the Oakland Cemetery, where some of the state’s more prominent past politicians such as Henry Sibley, William Marshall and Alexander Ramsey lay to rest. The North End also marks the start of the Gateway Trail, an 18-mile trail that connects Saint Paul to the city of Stillwater, Minnesota.
As far as the best spots to eat in the North End, Mama's Pizza, Tin Cup, Wilebski's Blues Saloon and Cozy Kitchen all provide a unique atmosphere.
The hardworking mindset of the citizens and charm of the State Capitol and its surrounding attractions make the North End a truly unique Saint Paul neighborhood.
