Gives a List of Desirable Property
The Place to List Property!
AND THE REASONS WHY.
A List of Desirable Property in St. Paul
and throughout the Northwest.
Never had a city a brighter future than has St. Paul, yet that
future lias never been folly measured or rightly interpreted by but
a very few. These few with a prescience that has not balked at
rnianci.il crashes or disasters have looked forward to that which
is now only commencing to be realized in the solid blocks and
mammoth wholesale establishments that vie with the greatest and
grandest of metropolitan institutions of the East. With a system
of railroads, tapping a greater extent and a more productive
agricultural country than is directly contributory to any other
city on the continent —a region of country, the extent of which
has never yet been comprehended and only once been illustrated—
the future of St. Paul must surpass the fondest dreams of the early
pioneers. When the President of one of the giant transportation
companies with busy lines of roads terminating in this city, showed
that a line drawn from here east to extend three hundred miles be
yond New York city into the Atlantic,and then swung around to the
Northwest, would yet fall within the rich, golden wheat-produc
ing region contributory to this city, he only exemplified a truth,
the realization of which has placed him among the kings of com
merce ancKhe stock of his road beyond and above the possibility of
being effected by financial stringency and made it the most valuable
in the nation. This truth is one that has come to stay, as have the
many institutions growing out of the same. To this center, in re
cognition of the facts that are as firmly established as the laws of
nature, are gathering the most enterprising men of the nation,
and establishing those institutions that are a necessity to a
metropolis and these men in every instance speak in highest terms
of the city and of the profit coming to them from their change
to this centre of growth and enterprise.
Just the other day a gentleman, who has been investing here
and has recently entered into business in this city, stated to the
writer, that out of every investment in St. Paul real estate he
never failed to double his money. That a health}' real estate
boom has been consequent upon this influx of population and the
development of new institutions is but natural. Yet there has
been no exaggeration of values and if any one will take the
trouble to compare St. Paul real estate prices with prices in other
cities, it will be found, they are yet low and must of necessity
advance from a natural and healthy demand for residence and
business purposes. What is said of St. Paul can be said of the
region of country surrounding St. Paul. All classes of farm
property to-day in Minnesota present a splendid opportunity for
safe investments, with a sure return of profits from the rise in
values. Good farms can be had to-day in well settled localities,
with schools, churches and good and convenient markets, at from
$8 to $20 an acre that yield more to the acre than land further
east that sells at from $50 to $200 per acre. Ft will be seen, upon
a very little thought, that now is the time for investments.
Money put into city property or hinds at the present time cannot
fail to yield most handsome returns.
To facilitate such investments and to aid in the exchange of
property, the agency named at the head of this article was estab
lished and like many other institutions in the State, has been re
moved to St. Paul, the grand center of business in the Northwest.
The WESTERN LAND EXCHANGE is the title of an organization
incorporated under the laws of the State of Minnesota for the transaction
of all business connected with real estate matters, bui especially in the line
of real estate sale and exchange. The want of such an exchange is evident
in every city and hamlet in this Northwest. There are farmers who want
to go to town, and city men who want to go to the country. There are
Eastern men who want to go West, and Western men who want to go East.
There are men in the older settled parts of Minnesota who want to go to
Western Minnesota or Dakota, and there are men here who own lands in
those parts who would like to exchange them for lands here. There are
men who have mill stock, or bank stock, or other personal property, that
they would like to exchange for land. Now the Western Land Exchange
steps in to bring these parties together, and to assist them in making these
The Exchange was originally organized at Red Wing in July, ISS2, by
the following named parties: S. J. Willard, President, Red Wing; li. 11.
Herbert, Vice-President, Red Wing; L. A. Hancock, Secretary and Treas
urer, Red Wing; W. C. Rice, General Agent, Red Wing; F. W. Iloyt, Attor
ney, Red Wine; J. W. Hancock, Ellsworth; E. J. Hodgson, St. Paul, and
subsequently the name, good will and business was purchased by 15. JJ. Her
bert and Dr. W. M. Sweney. The result nas been the opening of an office at
No. :>(3 East Third Street, near Cedar Street, St. Paul, with the same general
object, this being deemed the only suitable place for carrying out the general
purposes proposed in the original organization. St. Paul is not only the
political center of the State, but it is the center of capital and commerce of
the New Northwest.
Mr. Sweney will continue to conduct the agency at Red Wing, under the
same name, for the local business which comes to one of the solidest cities
of the State, while the general office at St. Paul will be under the direct con
trol cf Mr. ]}. H. Herbert, as President and Attorney, and L. /. lioynton, as
Secretary and General Agent.
