Area code 651

Area code 651 is the telephone numbering plan code for Saint Paul, Minnesota and the eastern suburbs of the Twin Cities. A dogleg portion also extends to the southeast along the Mississippi River to include cities such as Red Wing. The region was the fifth area code created in the state in 1998, when it was carved out of area code 612.

The area code splits in the Twin Cities are unusual because they split along municipal, rather than central office, boundaries. This led to a sizeable number of exchanges being divided between two area codes, and a few being divided between three.
