The Hewing Hotel occupies the Jackson Building, a former farm implement showroom and warehouse built in 1897. Trains once rolled directly into the building’s basement, were loaded with farm implements and continued on to farms around the Midwest. The building is a prime example of a brick-and-timber warehouse. As additional space was needed, the roof was removed and extra floors were added. These additions are apparent if you look up at the exterior of the building today.

Hewing Hotel’s name was inspired by the giant pine beams that abound in the interior of the hotel. They were logged in Minnesota, and floated down the Mississippi to the mills at St. Anthony Main just down the street.

Today, the Hewing Hotel is dedicated to crafting an unforgettable, high-quality experience for travelers and locals. Hewing Hotel guests can expect an authentic local experience that is truly one of a kind.
