Heading north from the State Capitol on Rice Street, you cross the railroad tracks and enter the city's North End District, a mix of residential and light industrial properties. The North End District is bisected by Maryland Avenue and the streets south of Maryland include an intact working-class enclave of small Victorian wood frames built by rail yard and mill workers at the end of the 19th century. North of Maryland there is a more suburban feel with curving streets, larger lots, and houses built in the 1930s, '40s and '8Os. There are many large apartment buildings, and North End housing is fairly evenly divided between single- and multi-family dwellings.
The neighborhood's older, blue-collar section centers around two large cemeteries. Pre-Civil War Oakland Cemetery, east of Rice Street, is a designated historic site where many of St. Paul's early statesmen, including founding father Henry Sibley, are buried. Calvary Cemetery is west of Como Avenue. Besides the Victorian houses, many sturdy Midwestern squares and small worker cottages line the streets. Newer North End housing includes a small single-family development overlooking Lyton Park. The Lewis Park development offers townhomes and barrier-free apartments. The northern stretch of residences surrounding Wheelock Parkway, extending to the east toward lake Phalen, makes up the neighborhood's more affluent section. Here, large pre-1940 Midwestern-squares and Colonials are interspersed with more recently built split-levels. Wheelock Parkway winds through the North End, following the edge of a sheer bluff overlooking another cemetery (Elmhurst) and the plain below. The tracts of recently built houses and rolling hills have more in common with the surrounding suburb of Maplewood than with St. Paul. Convenient shopping is available on thoroughfares, including Rice Street, and Maplewood Mall is a short drive north on White Bear Avenue.
