Alexander Ramsey House
Alexander Ramsey served as both the first governor of the Minnesota Territory and the second governor of the state. Construction on the home began in 1868. The family lived in the home until the granddaughters, who never married, died in 1959 and 1964. They left the house and all its contents to the Minnesota Historical Society, founded in part by their grandfather in 1849.
