Saint Paul (or St. Paul) is the county seat of Ramsey County and the capital of the U.S. state of Minnesota. With an estimated population in 2017 of 309,180, St. Paul is the second-most populous city, after Minneapolis, in Minnesota.
The two cities are almost one: their centers just 7½ miles apart. Known together as the "Twin Cities", the two municipalities form the core of Minneapolis–Saint Paul, the 16th-largest metropolitan area in the United States, with about 3.6 million residents.
St. Paul started as a settlement on the east bank of the Mississippi River, at the point where the Minnesota River branches off. It developed into a trading and transportation center that grew in importance after becoming the capital of Minnesota Territory in 1849.
St. Paul was founded at the site of present-day Lambert's Landing. It was christened with the name by Lucien Galtier, the first Catholic priest of the region. An earlier title is said to have been “Pig's Eye” in honor of Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parrant, a French-Canadian adventurer, who ran a tavern in the area.
