Summit Avenue Between Selby Avenue and Farrington Street, St. Paul, Minnesota

Summit Avenue is amazing, and it shows what can happen when a group of people get together and rehab a bunch of houses and don’t let them be demolished for “progress.” The following houses are from east to west on the north side of Summit Avenue from Selby Avenue to Nina Street. I’ll let them speak for themselves.

We now cross over to the south side of Summit Avenue at Nina Street below, which looks down the bluffs. The house below is Post-Modernist in-fill. We’ll head east back towards Selby Avenue and the James J. Hill House.

Now we go back to Nina Street on the north side of the street and go west until we get to Farrington Street.

    Summit Ave is fantastic – there are architectural tours too where you actually get to enter many of these houses. Overall MSP has killer housing stock – more nice Craftsman bungalows than you can shake a stick at and which would make an excellent followup!

    The mansions on L. Harriet, Isles, and Bde Maka Ska and surrounding homes are totally worth documenting, especially Isles/Kenwood.
