About the SoSP

My name is Matt Reicher. 

I am a historian and content creator writing about St. Paul's history on this site. I grew up on the east side and have been interested in learning about its past for as long as I can remember.

If you enjoy my writing (and have maybe learned something new), please consider buying me a cup of coffee.

The Streets of St. Paul strives to preserve and share the city's rich cultural heritage and stories. Our research and storytelling aim to educate and inspire readers, fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of the people, places, and events that have shaped the unique identity of Minnesota's capital city.
