It used to be true that if the Twin Cities were twin sisters, Minneapolis would be the pretty, popular one, and St. Paul would be Barb from Stranger Things (though we love Barb). While Downtown St. Paul’s after-hours scene is still more low-key than most major metros, there are a lot of great, overlooked post-work and weekend-eve activities that should make your calendar. Whether you live or work in Minnesota’s capital city, or you make a point of making a night of it, here are a whole slew of reasons to stay out in St. Paul. Source
Education in St. Paul
About St. Paul Educational System
Saint Paul, Minnesota contains many educational institutions. A number of educational “firsts” have happened in Saint Paul. Hamline University, the first and oldest college in Minnesota, was founded in Saint Paul in 1854. In 1991 Minnesota became the first state in the United States to pass legislation allowing the existence of charter schools. The following year, the first charter school in the nation, City Academy High School, was established in Saint Paul. The oldest library in Minnesota, the Minnesota State Law Library, was opened in 1849. Source
History of St. Paul:
St. Paul is rich in history!
Sioux and Ojibwa peoples were early inhabitants of the area. In 1680 the Franciscan missionary Louis Hennepin passed the site, and in 1766 explorer Jonathan Carver probed a nearby cavern (since known as Carver’s Cave). In 1805 Lieutenant Zebulon Montgomery Pike, leader of an American expedition to explore the headwaters of the Mississippi River, made a treaty there (never officially ratified) with the Sioux for possession of the region, including the site on which the military outpost Fort Snelling (now a state park) was later built. The first land claim was made in 1838 by tavern owner Pierre (“Pig’s Eye”) Parrant; he was closely followed by Abraham Perry. Source

St. Paul’s population grew steadily during the first half of the 20th century, nearly doubling between 1900 and the peak year of 1960 (when it reached 313,411). The number of people subsequently declined, as had happened in Minneapolis, though in St. Paul the drop was not nearly as sharp as it was for its western neighbor. By about 1990 the city’s population was again increasing. Throughout the city’s history the great majority of its residents have been of European (largely German and Irish) ancestry, but that proportion has been decreasing as the number of African Americans, Asians, and Hispanics has grown; the latter three groups now constitute about one-third of the population.
