Burbank Livingston Griggs Mansion

The Burbank-Livingston Grigg’s Mansion is a three-story gray limestone mansion that is located at 432 Summit Avenue in Saint Paul.  This mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the first (and finest) examples of mid-nineteenth century Italianate architecture in Saint Paul and in Minnesota.  It was originally designed for wealthy businessman James C. Burbank, but has since been converted to three separate units of varying size. 

This breathtaking property overlooks the Mississippi River Valley and Downtown Saint Paul and is located next to the University Club of Saint Paul.  The mansion was designed by Chicago architect Otis L. Wheelock and construction was completed in 1865.  It was one of the first mansions built on the now prestigious Summit Avenue.  The house is 8,000 square feet and is situated on 1.28 acres.  It was extensively remodeled in the 1920’s with eighteenth century boiseries shipped from Italy and France and installed in eight major rooms.  The mansion includes nine fireplaces, marble floors, imported antique parquet floors, a ballroom, lavish baths, rock crystal chandeliers, and a grand staircase.
