National Register of Historic Places Information

This building was constructed for George E. Hess who operated a grocery store and saloon in this building and lived upstairs. He still owned the building in 1888 when a permit was issued for a $500 addition or alteration to the structure.



For many years the building was part of a collection of commercial buildings along East 7th Street between downtown Saint Paul and Dayton's Bluff. With the construction of the I-94 and 35-E freeways and the widening of Lafayette Boulevard for entrance to the Lafayette Bridge most of the buildings were torn down.

"The George E. Hess Building is historically significant as one of the most intact commercial buildings located along E. 7th Street, a busy commercial thoroughfare leading from Downtown to Dayton's Bluff. The building is one of the oldest commercial building in the area, and has a solid exposed limestone rubble rear wall."
