This area has long been a meeting place of people and ideas. In the 1850s two major overland routes converged just a few blocks from here. By the 1880s the district was a bustling residential area for both the wealthy and the immigrant. Today the neighborhood is a mix of Victorian mansions and modest dwellings, shops, schools, and places of worship — where people of many cultural and ethnic backgrounds dwell together. Famous names associated with the Historic Hill District include writers F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis, August Wilson, and Garrison Keillor; railroad and lumber barons James J. Hill and Frederick Weyerhaeuser; and Archbishop John Ireland.
