North St. Paul now marketing ‘new’ single-family home near Webster School 

The transformation of a duplex into a single-family home located across the street from Webster Elementary School in North, St. Paul, is nothing short of amazing, and it is even more amazing that all the renovation work was done by high school students. 

After a prior resident had to be evacuated using teargas and arrested for criminal acts in 2013, the duplex at 2001 Sixth Street, North St. Paul, was boarded up and fell into foreclosure. The dwelling soon became a blight that the neighborhood was eager to change.
