How the Riverfront Was Won—and How Preservation Played a Role 3:00-4:30 pm
Tuesday, April 02, 2019, 3:00 PM until 4:30 PM
Mill City Museum, 6th floor
710 2nd St. S.
Join us as Linda Mack, former StarTribune architecture reporter and critic, presents a visual survey of the Minneapolis riverfront's rebirth from the days of Fuji-Ya and Pracna on Main to the arrival of the Guthrie Theater. In her 21 years at the StarTribune, Linda covered the redevelopment of the Minneapolis (and St. Paul) riverfront. She also conducted 26 oral history interviews for the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board-funded Rebirth of the Minneapolis Riverfront Oral History Project. Active in historic preservation since the 1980s, she currently serves on the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission.
PLEASE NOTE: The program is not in the museum itself but the building next door to the east. Enter through the 710 doors off 2nd St. S. From the 710 lobby, take the elevator up to the 6th floor to the ADM room.
