Learn about the historical Lafayette Neighborhood, where the Schurmeier Lofts are located today.

St. Paul’s Lafayette neighborhood was once a bustling neighborhood filled with stately homes and the city’s elite. James J. Hill along with the Schurmeier family once resided in this part of town known as “Mansion Row.” But, as the city grew and industry boomed, the area began to transition. By 1917, the neighborhood had changed dramatically as the Great Northern Railway was redirected through the Lafayette neighborhood and brought more industry to the area. The Schurmeier Wagon Company was a wagon manufacturing plant and houses today’s Schurmeier Loft Apartments.
