Engineering the Falls: History Player William de la Barre Tour

Take a walking tour of St. Anthony Falls led by costumed History Player William de la Barre, the Austrian engineer who spent half a century developing Minneapolis flour milling and waterpower. Visit the Minneapolis riverfront, the west side milling district and the Stone Arch Bridge, and hear about the many ways the falls have changed over the years.
