Macalester-Groveland is home to Macalester College, St. Paul Seminary and the University of St. Thomas. These institutions, together with the students and faculty, help create a community with its own personality.

Many of the homes in Macalester-Groveland were constructed from the early 1900's through the 1920s. This time of prosperity resulted in an extraordinary mix of homes. One can find cottages, bungalows and mansions in a variety of architectural styles—including English gothic, Spanish-Mission, Tudor revival and Colonial revival. (One area west of Macalester College called Tangletown is known for its seemingly unplanned mix of streets, homes and lot sizes. The area provides a unique alternative to today’s master-planned community.)

A typical home has hardwood floors, rich hardwood trim and other features not found in modest homes built today. Try this link for more description.

Macalester-Groveland has a population of nearly 20,000 people. The number of school-age children and working-age adults are both increasing. Residents enjoy walking along Grand Avenue , which is reminiscent of a small town’s main street running at a slightly higher speed. Grand Avenue includes coffee houses, small shops, restaurants and family-owned stores.

Notable opportunities to enjoy the outdoors include scenic Summit Avenue and the River Road walking/biking trail.
