The City of St. Paul was named the state’s capital in 1849, but the title was nearly lost in scandal. In 1857, a committee voted to move the capital to St. Peter. When Joe Rolette of the state legislature found out, he stole the physical bill itself and disappeared off the map, effectively halting the move! In the 1900s, St. Paul endured tornados, urban renewal and the construction of Interstate 94 through the already completed city, but managed to emerge larger and stronger than ever. Over the years, many historic people have owned St. Paul real estate, including Charles M Schulz, August Wilson and Roy Wilkins.
