Summit Avenue Walking Tour

Summit Avenue Walking Tour

Take a walking tour of the historic Summit Avenue neighborhood, led by a guide from the James J. Hill House. Tours are offered every Saturday and Sunday, May through September. Tours begin at the Hill House and proceed west along Summit Avenue, named one of America’s “Great Streets.” The group returns via side streets and alleyways to conclude outside the Cathedral of Saint Paul. The tours focus on the architecture, original owners, social history and current preservation issues facing this nationally recognized historic district. The tour covers 1.5 miles and uses public sidewalks and parks. All areas are handicapped accessible, but some side streets are cobblestone and have stone curbs.
