June 16, 2019, Sunday - Railroad History Walking Tour at Mill City Museum

Time: 1:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Location: Mill City Museum, 704 S 2nd Street

Railroad History Walking Tours

Beginning with the arrival of Minnesota's first rail line in 1862, Minneapolis boomed in population, flour milling, lumber production, and warehousing as a rail network extended throughout the Upper Midwest.

Take a guided tour of railroad landmarks, including the Stone Arch Bridge, Milwaukee Road Depot, and the Minneapolis Eastern Railway engine house and trestle. Along the way, find clues to the vanishing railroad landscape and learn about the future of Twin Cities rail.

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

Future dates: July 7, August 4, September 8, September 29
