About Us

The James J. Hill Center is a non-profit business center, located in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

The iconic entrepreneur James J. Hill had a vision to provide the people of Minnesota with a Reference Library to support and grow cultural and economic development in the state. The James J. Hill Reference Library opened its doors in 1921.

At the James J. Hill Center our focus is business, community and entrepreneurship.

We are an iconic place to learn, convene and connect – in the community, business, the arts, technology, innovation and celebration. Our goal is to build sustainable and lasting relationships that enable entrepreneurial activities and economic prosperity by providing services, programming, and events.

Our space. Your success.

Research. Meet. Grow.
