A Minnesota Treasure.
I've been going to events at the James J. Hill House since I was a little girl, and it's always a wonderful experience. The house is very beautiful, and there's so much intriguing history about the house and the Hill family. I learn something new each time I visit. The staff are very knowledgeable and gracious. The fees are very reasonable (usually $8 per event). I just received a membership to the Minnesota Historical Society for my birthday, so I will be attending lots of events at the Hill House as well as all the other fabulous historical sites around Minnesota!
My family of 5 and I were all excite to attend. We got admisssion prices off this site. We took some friends along being how resonable the prices were I decided to treat my 8 friends . HOWEVER, I was totally shocked by how different the prices were at the door as compared to the website. I see you have changed the prices now but a bit too late for me. Shocking weren't the Victorian ghost stories but the unexpected admission fee. GOT ME THERE!!!! I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED!!
Multipurpose house museum on the crest of Ramsey Hill.. In Short You could live like this, too, if it were 1891 and your railway (the Great Northern) hauled most of the timber and grain in the upper Midwest. Thirteen bathrooms, 22 fireplaces and a 100-foot reception hall. Forget the nearby Cathedral of St. Paul and the State Capitol; while Jim Hill lived, this red-sandstone pile was the Twin Cities' power address.
