The Carpenter Gothic home was build in 1871 for E. St. Julien Cox, a Civil War veteran, attorney, state senator, district court judge, and St. Peter’s first mayor elected in 1865. Seven Cox children grew up in the house. Lillian became the first female mayor in Minnesota in 1921. Eugene played professional baseball and trained a dog that starred in Hollywood films. Daughter Irene became one of the first women to practice law in the state.
