Connecting Business, Entrepreneurs & Community
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. In 2013 the name was changed to James J. Hill Center to more fully represent the services and programs provided beyond the reference library.
The Hills’ mission honors the legacy of its founder by continuing to support the entrepreneurial spirit in the 21st Century. We offer research, programs, and networking for each stage of business development. Our efforts also include services to the broader community through the hosting of cultural and artistic programming and events.
