Port of Saint Paul

Since the advent of steamboats in 1812, this landing has served as a tie-up location for countless numbers of commercial river vessels, from paddle-wheelers to tugs. From here, thousands of barges can be seen passing by each year, quietly ferrying tens-of-millions of tons of grain, lumber, rock and other commodities along St. Paul's riverfront to downstream ports of call and markets worldwide.

First named after a series of early local merchants, the site at the foot of the Jackson St. was later known simply as the "Lower Landing". In 1940, it was formally renamed for Col. George C. Lambert, champion of the river's 9-foot channel, which allows for commercial navigation. Congress approved the barge channel in 1930, fostering a vital and vibrant commercial transportation link that continues to this day.
