Wonderland Amusement Park with Susan Hunter Weir

April 8 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In 1905, Wonderland Park on East Lake Street was a popular amusement park where the
people of Minneapolis could ride one of the world’s finest carousels, witness amazing, death-
defying acts, and even tour a display of local premature infants being treated in the new
scientific marvel, an electric incubator. Susan Hunter Weir, Director of the Friends of the
Cemetery, Pioneers & Soldiers Memorial Cemetery, will share stories and images about this
time in Minneapolis history.
