August 5, 2017, Saturday - Women’s Work: History Player Eva Valesh Tour at Mill City Museum

Time: 10:30pm

Location:  Mill City Museum, 704 South 2nd Street

Women’s Work: History Player Eva Valesh Tour at Mill City Museum

Join a costumed interpreter portraying labor writer Eva Valesh for a walking tour that highlights working conditions along the Minneapolis riverfront in the late 1880s. The guide will discuss jobs that were available to women in the late 19th and early 20th century, key events in women's labor history in Minneapolis and the factories that Valesh exposed, including the North Star Woolen Mill that still stands two blocks from Mill City Museum.

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.
