Take a guided walking tour of the Minneapolis riverfront and learn about its dramatic past and bright future.

Visit the historic district at St. Anthony Falls, once the milling center of the world and now a growing cultural, recreational, and residential neighborhood. Stop along the Stone Arch Bridge for spectacular views of the falls, view historic buildings surrounding the riverfront and downtown Minneapolis, and learn about the many people who have worked and lived in the area over the years.

Plus, view photographs showing how the area has changed through time, and learn about Minneapolis riverfront renaissance over the last 40 years through historic preservation of Mill Ruins Park, Mill City Museum, Milwaukee Road Depot, historic loft condominiums, and new developments, including the Guthrie Theater, MacPhail Center for Music, and riverfront housing.

Tour highlights include:

  • the Pillsbury A Mill, a National Historic Landmark
  • the Washburn A Mill, a National Historic Landmark
  • the Stone Arch Bridge, a National Historic Engineering Landmark
  • St. Anthony Falls, the only significant waterfall on the Mississippi River

This tour includes about 1.5 miles of moderately paced walking on uneven surfaces. Please call ahead to make arrangements for guests with limited mobility.
