Landmarks and History – E. St. Julien Cox House

St. Peter, MN

At the corner of North Washington Avenue and Skaro Street in St. Peter, you will find this magnificent house, significant in that it is known as the only Gothic Italianate-style structure in Minnesota. Built in 1871, it belonged to St. Peter’s first mayor, Eugene Saint Julien Cox. Cox eventually became a State Senator and a district judge, and was known to be quite a charismatic politician. Today, the house has been fully restored and is operated as a museum by the Nicollet County Historical Society.
