Refreshing the History of 27th & Lake
Downtown Longfellow neighborhood
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

The history of Lake Street is changing before our very eyes. Join Lake Street historian and former HHM Interim Director Cara Letofsky on a combination history-current walking tour of 27th & Lake. The tour will cover the development of the area from Dakota land, to a working class community fueled by immigrants and industry, to ground zero of the recent uprising in the wake of the death of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police. The tour will include a discussion of how the current historical events can be woven into the story of the area.

This in-person walking tour is limited to 10 participants and 4 hosts. Masks are required for everyone except the presenter. We ask that participants maintain 6 feet of distance between households.

About the presenter:
Cara Letofsky is a regional policy leader, nonprofit consultant, and local historian. She served as the President of the Board and Interim Director of Hennepin History Museum from 2014 to 2019. In 2012, she worked with the Lake Street Council to develop the Museum in the Streets tours of Lake Street, and has led tours each year since then.

Free tickets are available to those with financial need. HHM members can receive a discounted price by clicking the blue "Enter a Password or Discount Code." The password is provided in your membership letter.
