When Minnehaha Flowed with Whiskey: A Spirited History of the Falls with Karen Cooper
December 10 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Linden Hills resident and historian Karen E. Cooper has spoken to LHHSG on several occasions
sharing the history of Minnehaha Falls. Now she will tell stories of the rowdy mayhem and
boozy carryings on at the Falls in the years between 1850s and the 1900s. These stories are told in Karen’s book, When Minnehaha Flowed with Whiskey, to be published spring 2022. Just for us, Karen will tell stories from the book and some that didn’t make it into the book including drunken commotion on the river and Temperance Movement extremist Carrie Nation.
