Tour-Walking: A Raucous Ramble Around Minnehaha Falls (Southwest) OUTDOOR
Adult Enrichment / Trips, Tours & Special Events -
Adult Enrichment Fall 2021
NEW TOUR ADDED ON OCT 2nd! (Sept. 25th tour is full) The lost history of Minnehaha Falls includes dance halls, secret saloons, wild behavior, lawsuits and whiskey. Join historian Karen Cooper for a 1-mile walk as she tours the places in Minnehaha Park where all this mayhem occurred a hundred years ago. Crooks, landowners, saloon owners, and hoteliers went to the Falls to turn a profit or to raise a little ruckus. The conflict between moral upright society and the dissipated partiers at the Falls is a fascinating and forgotten story. Presented in collaboration with the Hennepin History Museum. NOTE: Group meets at 4800 S Minnehaha Dr, Minneapolis, MN 55417. Pay lots available on along the Parkway as well as metered parking in the area.
