Ramsey County is a county located in the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Minnesota, bounded in some places by the Mississippi River, by Hennepin County, Anoka County, Washington County, and Dakota County. All of the county seat, Saint Paul is in the county, including Saint Paul's "West Side" neighborhood, which is south of the Mississippi River.

Historic Places

The county's historic places include houses, places of worship, commerce, and education, and community centers and infrastructure. Several districts encompass several structures of related historic significance. Some of the oldest structures in the state are in Ramsey County, representing the earliest of non-native residents in the state. As the northernmost natural port on the Upper Mississippi River, Saint Paul grew, handling both river and rail freight and passenger traffic. Even as Minneapolis (in Hennepin County) eventually surpassed Saint Paul in the volume of commerce, Saint Paul remained relevant as the state capitol and associated government services and employment kept the county growing. Several of the sites are specifically related to the various first-generation immigrant populations that made Ramsey County their new home in America, especially Germans, Czechs, Scandinavians, and Austro-Hungarians, which together comprised the majority of residents in the first century of the county's history.
