[POSTPONED] Wonderland Park
March 16 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
We have received notice that Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is suspending all in-person church activities as of March 14. The building will be closed and all activities suspended through March 27. Thus, this program has been postponed.
We will look at rescheduling when things have settled down.
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.
