West End Neighbors' Garden (and History) Tours

For 13 years volunteers have organized garden tours, the last six with complimentary histories of the neighborhoods along West Seventh Street. They have been quite successful in being one strategy of enhancing the perspective that we're a great place to live along the banks of the Mississippi River--with a wonderful history of the first residential neighborhoods of our state. I am compiling the histories into a book, tentatively titled the Origin Story of Fort Road/West Seventh Street, the Township/City of Saint Paul, the Territory/State of Minnesota.
