North St. Paul is a city in Ramsey County, Minnesota, east of the city of Saint Paul. The population was 11,460 at the 2010 census.[1]

North St. Paul is a distinct city, and not a neighborhood of nearby St. Paul. This fact also contributes to a major difference from typical suburbs; rather than being composed of new developments and urban sprawl, many of the structures in town are older, including a downtown area of brick storefronts.

To the side of Margaret Street bridge and Highway 36 resides the North Saint Paul Snowman. It is the official city logo of North Saint Paul.

Silver Lake and Casey Lake are the city's largest bodies of water and both have large, adjacent parks.

History

In 1870, Henry A. Castle founded Castle Site along the shore of Silver Lake extending to the south and west. In 1887, the town was incorporated as a village and renamed North St. Paul. The 1880s also brought Soo Line, originally to transport grain from nearby Minneapolis to Sault Ste. Marie.

City founder Henry Ansom Castle and his wife Margaret Wesley Jaquess Castle had seven children. On July 2, 1887, Henry moved his family into their summer villa on Silver Lake: Helen Steel (21), Mary Jane (17), Charles William (15), Henry Jaquess (13), Margaret (11), Anne (9) and James Timothy (6). (Ages from census) "Henry Street" is named after Castle; "Margaret Street" is named after his wife; "Helen Street" is named after their first born daughter Helen; and "Charles Street" is named after their first born son Charles. These are the main streets running north and south through town.

Transportation

Minnesota Highway 36 and the Gateway State Trail, running over the former Soo Line Railway grade, bisect the city. Highway 36 serves as a main route in the city; it is a four-lane highway with both at-grade and overpass intersections. Additionally, Interstate Highway 694 is in close proximity to the city.
