Collection Close-up: Street Names in St. Paul

 

by Karen Neinstadt

 

Have you ever wondered how the streets in St. Paul got their names?

 

In The Street Where You Live: A Guide to the Place Names of St. Paul author Donald Empson gives historical background information for the streets and some neighborhoods of the capital city.

 

For example, John Ireland Boulevard was named in 1961 by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, a Catholic Irish-American fraternal organization. John Ireland (1838-1918) was Roman Catholic archbishop of St. Paul from 1884 until his death. It was speculated that he risked the church’s money to increase the value of his land due to the creation of the University of St. Thomas and the St. Paul Seminary. He supposedly paid a streetcar mogul an “incentive bonus” to extend the streetcar routes to his lots, making them more marketable. Due to financial depression in 1893, Ireland’s real estate lost value, and James J. Hill came to his rescue.

 

For anyone interested in local history and place names, this book is indexed and easy to navigate.
