Welcome to the Minnesota Governor's Residence. Located at 1006 Summit Avenue in St. Paul's historic Summit Avenue neighborhood, the Residence is one of the many stately houses in the area originally built for families that today are a part of the fabric of Minnesota history. Some of these houses - including the James J. Hill House and the Governor's Residence - are open for public tours.
The need to provide a comprehensive restoration of the Residence has been well documented over the years. In January of 2012, the Department of Administration initiated predesign efforts for the repair, restoration, and preservation of the Residence.
Tours of the Residence will not be held this year. Please check back on this website in April of 2014 for updated information about the 2014 tour schedule. Check the preservation page for more details.
The Children's Garden, established in 1993, serves as a lasting symbol of the state's commitment to all children.
