Mill District and the banks of the Mississippi

Interesting
This district contains fascinating relics of the growth of industry in Minneapolis. In the early 19C, the first mills were erected over the waterfalls; three generations later, over 20 gargantuan flourmills were built there, as warehouses sprung up nearby. Today, the old buildings are gradually being regenerated, giving this forgotten area a new lease of life. Follow St Anthony Falls Heritage Trail, which takes you along the riverfront.
