The annual Minneapolis and St. Paul Home Tour will be held on Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 27, from 1 5 p.m. During the home tour, residentsin both Minneapolis and St. Paul open their homes to the public to showcase the great things about city living.

This year we have 326 Maria which is one of the 4th Street Preservation Project homes, the old Mound’s Park School building that is now 24 apartments and a number of other wonderful Dayton’s Bluff homes.

Dayton’s Bluff has so many wonderful homes that each year we have six to eight homes on the tour. The tour shows off many of Dayton’s Bluff great features: the location, Metro State, the parks, the growing business community, the views of the city and the Mississippi River, and the outstanding housing options in Dayton’s Bluff. The tour is hosted by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour and Dayton’s Bluff Community Council.

The tour brochures can be picked up at a Saint Paul Library or can be picked up at any of the homes listed above during the hours of the tour.

Many people come here year after year to see what’s up in Dayton’s Bluff. They like the variety of homes, the parks, the neighborhoods and the neighborhood people they meet in the homes. Some of the visitors like it so well that they have made Dayton’s Bluff their home.
Neighborhood volunteers help with the Dayton’s Bluff home tour. Tasks include greeting people at the door, giving out brochures and information about Dayton’s Bluff, and helping the homeowners.
