Dayton's Bluff

Running from just east of downtown south to the banks of the Mississippi, Dayton's Bluff is steeped in history. It was the earliest upscale neighborhood in the city, the preferred residential quarter for the merchants and bankers who built Saint Paul, and today it's the city's largest historic district. On the bluff itself, Mounds Park enshrines six ancient Native burial mounds, while nearby are the striking new buildings of Metropolitan State University, and Swede Hollow, once an immigrant settlement, today a park. The Swede Hollow Café, perched above the park, serves coffee and imaginative pastries and sandwiches to a loyal crowd.
