Railroad History Tour @ Mill City Museum


Beginning with the arrival of Minnesota's first rail line in 1862, Minneapolis boomed in population and flour milling, lumber production and warehousing took off. 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. Each tour will begin and end at Mill City Museum where participants can visit the museum gallery (included in the price of the tour). The tour includes about 1.5 miles of moderately-pace walking on uneven surfaces.
