The City of West St. Paul has a bit of a confusing name, as it is really located south of St. Paul. The name indicates the city’s location in relation to the Mississippi River, as it lays on the river’s west bank. West St. Paul real estate was first platted in the mid-1800s, and the settlement began as a small farming community. Near the end of the 19th century, it became clear that St. Paul was only going to become more populous, and West St. Paul farmers got into the business of market gardening. Because of this, in addition to sharing a name, the two towns relied on each other and began a close relationship that continues to this day.
