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.
