North Oaks was originally only a water source for the St. Paul municipal water system. In 1883, James J. Hill purchased 5000 acres of the land and built a home and a breeding/hobby farm. For nearly 70 years, the land remained in the Hill family. However, in the 1950’s, Hill’s grandchildren decided to develop the area as a community, and so the North Oaks Corporation was born. Around 60 years later, North Oaks is now one of the Twin Cities’ premier cities. Hill’s original buildings and a recreation of his 19th century lifestyle can still be observed at the historic Hill Farm.
Both Mounds View School District and White Bear Lake School District offer education options for North Oaks real estate owners.
