Summary

Significance: The Alexander Ramsey "Mansion House" is an excellent example of the large private residence being built in St. Paul during the latter half of the 19th century, and is a symbol of the rapid economic and cultural development of the northwest after 1850. The house is of particular interest because it has been altered only slightly from its original condition, and has retained almost all of the original furnishings.
Survey number: HABS MN-48
