Minneapolis Flour Milling District
Along the west bank of the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis lies Mill Ruins Park. This historic area was once a booming sawmilling and flour milling industry. Between the years of 1880 to 1930, Minneapolis was called the “flour milling capital of the world.”
Minneapolis Farmers Market
The Minneapolis Farmers Market opened in 1937 and has been a source for fresh produce and products for people all over the Twin Cities area. Today, the market supports about 230 vendors who alternate the use of 170 stalls.
Nicollet Island lies in the middle of the Mississippi River and is connected to Downtown and Northeast Minneapolis by the Hennepin Avenue Bridge. It is the largest island on the Mississippi River.
The Foshay Tower, now the W Minneapolis, was modeled after the Washington Monument. The building was completed in 1929, months before the stock market crash in October of that year. It has 32 floors and stands 447 feet (136 m) high. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. The Foshay Tower was the first building in the city to surpass the height of Minneapolis City Hall, completed in 1906. It remained the tallest building in Minneapolis until the IDS Center surpassed it in 1972.
Stone Arch Bridge
The Stone Arch Bridge is a former railroad bridge crossing the Mississippi River at Saint Anthony Falls in downtown Minneapolis. The bridge was built in 1883 by railroad tycoon James J. Hill for his Great Northern Railway, and accessed the former passenger station located about a mile to the west, on the west bank of the river. The structure is now used as a pedestrian and bicycle bridge. It is an Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
