WEST Saint Paul CONTRACT FOR DEED HOMES
Welcome to West Saint Paul is a city in Dakota County, Minnesota, immediately south of Saint Paul, Minnesota, and immediately west of South Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The city’s misleading name comes in part from the fact that it lies on the west bank of the predominantly north-to-south Mississippi River. A previous City of West St. Paul, incorporated in the late 19th century, was situated in what is now called St. Paul’s Lower West Side. According to the West 7th/Fort Road foundation, St. Paul annexed the West Side, and was incorporated for two reasons: “to aid law enforcement—criminals could escape St. Paul authorities by crossing to the West Side and Dakota County—and to eliminate the Wabasha Street Bridge tolls which were inhibiting development on the West Side.” The current West St. Paul split from the western half of South St. Paul, and was incorporated in 1889, just south of the city of St. Paul. The population was 19,540 at the 2010 census, growing by 135 since 2000. West Saint Paul is known for its 2.5-mile retail strip along Robert Street.
Crown of Life Lutheran (K-8) and St. Croix Lutheran High School (6-12) are two Christian schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod in West St. Paul.
