St. Louis Park MN Historic Real Estate & Homes

Three things brought about the birth of the City of St. Louis Park: the lumber industry, (specifically lumber barons) its proximity to Minneapolis, and the manufacturing plants located in the area.

To avoid being engulfed by Minneapolis, St. Louis Park residents petitioned for and were granted incorporation and the Village of St. Louis Park was born in 1886. Four years later, the village was home to more than 600 manufacturing jobs, brought about by a group of wealthy industrialists, including a lumber baron.

Just three years after that, the village had grown enough to accommodate three hotels and additional businesses. Fast forward to 1954 and St. Louis Park becomes a city.

While St. Louis Park isn’t quite as old as St. Paul and Minneapolis, the city does have its share of vintage homes.

Purchasing a Historic Home

If this will be your first historic home purchase, you should know that the process is different from that of a more modern home purchase.

A vintage home may contain dated components, although many of the early 20th century homes in St. Louis Park have been updated. You will want to have the plumbing and electric systems inspected but other inspections may be needed as well, such as structural to ensure the foundation is sound.

If all of this doesn’t dampen your enthusiasm for a St. Louis Park historic home, you’ve come to the right place.

Whether you long for a circa 1920 classic in the Brookside neighborhood or your thoughts turn to a 1912 Craftsman, if it’s listed for sale, you’ll find it here on StLouisParkRealEstate.com.

Feel free to search for vintage homes in St. Louis Park right here and let us know if something grabs your interest. Listings update in real time, all day, every day, so check back frequently for new historic home listings in St. Louis Park.
