Ramsey County Real Estate Information

Ramsey County is a densely populated, primarily residential population center found in the eastern portion of the state of Minnesota. Ramsey County has a total population of approximately five hundred and eleven thousand residents, at least as of the census conducted in the year two thousand. That figure may have changed considerably, however, since it has been nearly nine years since those statistics were released, and the Twin Cities Area has been experiencing substantial population growth recently. Ramsey County covers a total area of almost completely one hundred and seventy square miles, which breaks down into one hundred and fifty six square miles of land and fourteen square miles of water. The county seat of Ramsey County is Saint Paul, which incidentally is also the state capital of the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes.

Ramsey County has the smallest total land area of all the counties in the state of Minnesota, which is interesting considering that it has a rather high population. Ramsey County real estate is split between urban, suburban, commercial, and industrial regions, most of which have relatively high property values considering their convenient location. Ramsey County takes its name from Alexander Ramsey, who was the first governor of Minnesota Territory. Ramsey County has a population density of approximately three thousand three hundred residents per square mile, which is one of the highest totals in the state of Minnesota. Ramsey County was of course originally the land of the Dakota Tribe of Sioux Native Americans.

Ramsey County borders a total of four other counties, which are Anoka County, Washington County, Dakota County, and Hennepin County. All of these counties are a part of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is one of the twenty largest in the country. Ramsey County properties are found in a number of cities, including Arden Hills, Falcon Heights, Maplewood, Saint Paul, Roseville, Vadnais Heights, Mounds View, Lauderdale, and Gem Lake, as well as a single township, White Bear Township. Ramsey County is home to a number of historic sites, as well as a portion of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area.
