James J. Hill House

$ 9.95

James J. Hill picked a commanding view of downtown St. Paul when he built the massive residence that bears his name. Embodying building from a bygone era, this forty-two room mansion features striking architectural details and tasteful decorative elements; it also reflects the latest technology of 1891. Above all, the house was a family home for James and Mary Hill and their nine children, as well as their twelve live-in servants. This fully illustrated guide to the house reveals both upstairs and downstairs life in the Victorian era.
