The Greater Eastside is one of the newer neighborhoods in the east metro. The homes in the neighborhood were made for the blue collar workers that were employed at the factories in Payne/Phalen and the old 3M headquarters. Did you know according to an August 22, 2016 Twin Cities Pioneer Press online article, ‘sixty years ago, hundreds of shift workers crowded the streets and sidewalks each morning on St. Paul’s East Side. Toting metal lunchboxes and Thermoses full of coffee, most headed to one of three places: Hamm’s, Whirlpool or 3M.
During their heyday in the 1950s, these companies offered comfortable middle-class lifestyles to their combined workforce of more than 10,000 employees, anchoring a local economic boom that buoyed countless nearby small businesses. Designed as a commuter neighborhood, the Greater Eastside is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in St. Paul along with being one of the most populous.’
