A Great History…
South Saint Paul Minnesota was once a bounty for the Mdewakanton Sioux. But time changes and so the bounty.Here, time was driven on the hooves of cattle by drovers, ramrods and settlers. Over the years, our community grew and earned a reputation as home to proud and rugged individuals. People dead set on prosperity.Today you can still feel those historic roots, you can sense the opportunity and see the character in every part of Bridge Point, the most exciting developing business park here in the upper Midwest.But make no mistake. Despite the rich past, this is no ‘museum’ community. It’s as vibrant and stubbornly set on prosperity for its members today as it ever was in the past. Here, smiles come easily, handshakes are firm, buildings and business relationships are built to last.You see, a community weaned on rawhide and frontier life learns what it takes for its businesses to succeed. That’s what we work a little harder for and offer more to any business with a mind to join us.
