Dance halls, secret saloons, wild behavior, lawsuits and whiskey. Historian Karen Cooper shares the lost history of Minnehaha Falls where all this mayhem occurred a hundred years ago. Crooks, landowners, saloon owners, and hoteliers went to the Falls to turn a profit or to raise a little ruckus. The conflict between moral upright society and the dissipated partiers at the Falls is a fascinating and forgotten story. Karen’s new book: When Minnehaha Flowed with Whiskey – A Spirited History of the Falls is set to release this May.

Cost is $20 per household.  Presented in partnership with Minneapolis Community Education.
