Dayton's Bluff St. Paul Ramsey

National Register of Historic Places Information



When William Wakefield built his home, called "What Cheer Lawn," in 1859/1860, he created a suburban estate in McLean Township of Ramsey County on a territorial road which ran to Hudson, Wisconsin. Later the city of St. Paul expanded to include the area of Dayton's Bluff where Wakefield's home was built and eventually a city street was laid in front of his property. First called Birch Street, the street name was changed in 1892 to Wakefield Avenue in honor of William Wakefield. When you look at the house today it sits at an angle to the street and is set way back on the lot in the middle of the block. The alleys on both ends of the block dead end at the property's edge.
