James J. Hill House

Rugged stone, massive scale, fine detail and ingenious mechanical systems recall the powerful presence of James J. Hill, builder of the Great Northern Railway. Guides lead tours that help you imagine family and servant life in the Gilded Age mansion, the setting of the public and private lives of the Hill family.

The James J. Hill House is a National Historic Landmark.

From Mrs. Hill's Diary - 4/19

Quite cold and windy. Snowed last night. All white this morning _ freezing. (St. Paul, 1914)

The James J. Hill House is a great choice for holding rental events including meetings, luncheons, performances and more.
