When Minnehaha Flowed with Whiskey: A Spirited History of the Falls with Karen Cooper

December 10, 2022 @ 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, published in 2022 by the Minnesota Historical Society. 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.

Suggested donation of $5 for non-members.

An optional lunch follows the program.

Due to space limitation (50), please make a reservation for attending the program and a separate reservation for attending the lunch.
