How (Not) to Build a Sports Facility: The 1884 Minneapolis Ballpark

  • Mill City Museum 710 South 2nd Street Minneapolis, MN, 55401 United States (map)

Preserve Minneapolis is thrilled to welcome Kristin Anderson as our February Morning Forum speaker! Kristin is an educator of arts and history with a particular interest in sports facilities.

In recent weeks, the Minneapolis and St. Paul have been in the throes of Super Bowl planning and events, with the signature event being the big game in the big new stadium. The USBank Stadium project has generated significant controversy over the years, and it is certainly not the first sports facility to create conflict in the community. Leaving Super Bowl LII behind, we will travel back to 1884 to learn about another ambitious and controversial project, an architect-designed sports facility on the edge of downtown Minneapolis.

This is a *free* event - all are welcome!

Coffee and light refreshments will be provided. Donations are welcome!
