JAMES J. HILL CENTER IS SHAPING THE FUTURE
The James J. Hill Center has served residents of Saint Paul and beyond for almost a century. In December 1921, at the dawn of the nation’s modern era, the Hill library opened its doors to an enthusiastic public. Since then, it has played an important role in Saint Paul’s cultural and economic development. James J. Hill’s many philanthropic interests ﬂowed directly from his desire for an improved society. The James J. Hill Center has taken that passion into the 21st century by providing a gathering space for the ambitious, the creative and the industrious. It sets an inspirational backdrop where the next generation of Minnesotans can come together to shape the future
The Hills’ mission honors the legacy of its founder by continuing to support the entrepreneurial spirit in the 21st Century. We connect business, entrepreneurs and community to research, programs and networking for each stage of business development. Our efforts also include services to the broader community through the hosting of cultural and artistic programming and events.
When entrepreneurs thrive, our entire community ﬂourishes and the James J. Hill Center’s vision is to lead the way. We are a hub of innovation and opportunity. We fill in where others leave off. With the help of our members, donors and the entire community we are dedicated to building a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem.
