- Guides dressed in period garb lead tours through this well-preserved Victorian house. This Second Empire mansion was built by Alexander Ramsey, Minnesota's first territorial governor, in 1872 and is furnished with many original pieces. During his political career, Ramsey was also mayor of St. Paul and a United States senator. The house was occupied by Ramsey descendants until 1964 when it was willed to the Minnesota Historical Society. Tours start every hour with the last one beginning at 3pm. The house is seasonally decorated during the holidays and daily hours are expanded from November 27 through December 31. The office is in the adjacent carriage house. Tours are conducted May through December. Please call for Holiday tour hours. Cookies baked in the house's kitchen are included in the admission fee.
