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.

This in-person walking tour is limited to 25 participants, along with our guide and HHM staff members. Please register in advance.
