The James J. Hill Center has awed and inspired visitors with its historic and stunning architecture since it opened to the public in 1921. With an expansive ceiling and columns carved from Kettle River sandstone, the Hill sets a unique and inspirational backdrop for up to 300 guests.
Our amazing location in the heart of downtown St. Paul is convenient to award-winning hotels, restaurants, and entertainment. The Hill Center’s historic library delivers a book-lined Reading Room that brings to mind intellect, learning, and the wonders of literature.
Our professional events staff works hard to ensure your event goes smoothly by maintaining close contact with your vendors, guiding you through the layout process, and taking care of details you might forget in the hustle and bustle of the big day.
Best of all, when you book an event with the James J. Hill Center, you can be proud of where your money is going. The revenue generated by weddings helps to further our nonprofit mission of connecting business, entrepreneurs and community to research, knowledge and network.
