Rochester Historic Homes For Sale

Historic Houses For Sale in Rochester MN Two things brought about the birth of the City of Rochester: its location along the Dubuque trail and its fertile and inexpensive farm land. The former allowed folks to stop on their way between St. Paul and Dubuque, Iowa to rest and water their animals. The latter made them want to come back and settle. It was the railroad, however, that assured this city’s future growth and its transformation into a robust regional center. The sale of the Winona and St. Peter Railroad to Chicago & Northwestern Transportation Company opened up the rest of the country as Rochester’s farmers’ new sales territory.

Today, Rochester is as innovative as it was then. Home to the Mayo Clinic, the city continues to evolve and thrive. Traces of the past, however, survive in the splendid residential architectural one can find throughout the city, most especially on Pill Hill.

In Rochester’s Historic Southwest district you’ll find a variety of residential architectural styles including stunning Greek revival homes, English Tudor mansions, Colonial revivals and more. Rochester’s historic homes for sale typically range in price from the $500,000s to well over $1 million.  If you long to own a piece of Rochester’s history, feel free to peruse the historic homes for sale here on RochesterRealEstate.com.
