Summit Hill Map

Summit Hill/District 16 is bounded by Summit Avenue and Ramsey St. on the North, Interstate 35E on the South & East and Ayd Mill Road on the West. As one of the oldest and most popular neighborhoods in Saint Paul, the Summit Hill neighborhood is a regional and local treasure of history, architecture, distinctive pedestrian-oriented shopping and dining experiences, and strong community connections. The neighborhood’s Victorian-era housing stock, which is recognized nationally for its quantity, quality and diversity, continues to be restored and enhanced. Learn more about our history >
