7 Victorian Architecture on Summit Avenue in Saint Paul, Minnesota

Grand mansions were built along Summit Avenue from 1859 through the 1920s. This 4.5 mile boulevard has the finest collection of Victorian homes in the United States. A handsome example is this Queen Anne structure built in 1900. This was the former Mrs. Porterfield’s Boarding House. During the summer of 1919, 22 year old author F. Scott Fitzgerald would walk from his parent’s home at 599 Summit to meet friends on this porch. He also edited his first novel “The Romantic Egotist” here, published the following year as “This Side of Paradise.”
