North Saint Paul, Minnesota is situated in Ramsey County, east-northeast of Saint Paul. The city is known for its North Saint Paul Snowman, the city’s official logo, which was originally built on Margaret and 7th Streets from 1971 to 1974, and moved to its current location on the east side of the Margaret Street Bridge in 1990. Originally known as Castle, for its first settler, Henry A. Castle, who came to Saint Paul in 1868 with his family at the age of twenty-seven, and began acquiring land near Silver Lake to be platted for the future settlement that would later become North Saint Paul. The town was officially platted in 1886 when the Wisconsin Central Railroad was built to that point, and named Castle. Later, Henry Castle and his associates formed the North Saint Paul Land Company, and gave the town its current name. The city’s population increased by about a hundred percent between 1950 and 1960, and by forty percent between 1960 and 1970, but has since experienced slower, more consistent growth, declining slightly between 1990 and 2010. North Saint Paul is a distinct city, and not a neighborhood of Saint Paul, its much larger neighbor. Minnesota Highway 36 is the main route through the city, bisecting the Gateway State Trail, which follows the former Soo Line railway grade, within the city. Silver Lake is in the northeastern part of the city, and Casey Lake is in northwestern North Saint Paul. Interstate Highway 694 is nearby. Nearby communities include Maplewood, Oakdale, and Pine Springs.
