One of the best preserved Victorian homes in the nation, featuring walnut woodwork, marble fireplaces and chandeliers, this was the residence of Minnesota’s first territorial governor. Minnesota was not yet a state when John R. Irvine, one of St. Paul's earliest settlers, donated the land for a park that still bears his name. By the time Alexander Ramsey built his lavish mansion nearby in 1872, the area had become one of St. Paul's finest neighborhoods. Guides will lead a popular walking tour of the park and surrounding restored neighborhood beginning at the Ramsey House. Admission: $8 adults, $6 seniors, $5 ages 6-17. Tours: Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Reservations recommended. Group tours may be reserved other days.
