Places in the Park: St. Louis Park presented by Bill Beyer
September 12 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
History is mostly accidental and local; some is hyper-intentional with unintended
consequences. Now and then outside forces intrude. Named by real estate speculators who
never lived there, shaped by three railroads, and the site of a huge social experiment by one of the world’s richest men, St. Louis Park has become, above all, a community of caring people. Bill Beyer, retired architect, Park resident for 36 years, and trustee of the St. Louis Park Historical Society, will present some stories about the city’s founding and early history.
