The E. St. Julien Cox House was the home of one of the earliest settlers of St. Peter. Eugene Cox was an attorney, St. Peter’s first Mayor, and a representative to the State House and Senate. The Home, built in 1871, is one of the few fully restored Italianate homes in Minnesota. When you visit the Cox House, you will chat with costumed guides as you tour through this old home. Also, be sure to come and enjoy some of the many programs that the Cox House has to offer all year round.
