Saint Paul is the capital of the state of Minnesota and is on the north bank of the Mississippi. Along with the city of Minneapolis, it is part of the Twin Cities. It was designated the capital of the Minnesota Territory in 1849. In 1857, the legislature voted to move the capital to Saint Peter, but territorial legislator Joe Rolette physically stole the bill and went into hiding, preventing the change. In 1858, when Minnesota became a state, Saint Paul was retained as the capital.
