Directly next to the Mississippi River and the Stone Arch Bridge is the beautiful history in Mill Ruins Park.
In 2001, the City of Minneapolis opened up Mill Ruins Park to show a glimpse into the importance the flour mills had to our city.
The power generated by St. Anthony Falls was used to run the old mills.
From the perspective of the park, the mist of the raging St. Anthony Falls is on display. Also, take in the intricate detail of the stone in the archways beneath the bridge.
If you want to learn more take the tour of the lock and dam or visit the Mill City Museum.
