The lost history of Minnehaha Falls includes dance halls, secret saloons, wild behavior, lawsuits, and whiskey. Tour the places in Minnehaha Park where all this mayhem occurred a hundred years ago: crooks, landowners, saloon owners, and hoteliers all 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. Organized by Hennepin History Museum and lead by former HHM Board Member and historian Karen Cooper. 90 minutes in length; 1 mile.
Location: Tour departs from the Longfellow House, 4800 S Minnehaha Park Drive, Mpls, 55417
