Walk on the Wild Side with Maud: Maud Hart Lovelace Walking Tour

  • Mueller Park (Picnic/Courtyard Area) 2509 Colfax Avenue South Minneapolis, MN 55405 United States (map)

Walk on the Wild Side with Maud, in the footsteps of beloved Minnesota children's author Maud Hart Lovelace with local historian Kathy Kullberg.

From 1911 to the late 1920s, Lovelace lived in Minneapolis' East Lowry Hill neighborhood with her family and friends close by. These relationships and places became the basis for many of the characters and references in Betsy's Wedding, the last book in the Betsy-Tacy series. The tour will feature the sites and stories related to the Hart and Lovelace families.

This tour is ADA accessible and will walk about 3 blocks.

Tour guide Kathy Kullberg is an active preservationist and avid house historian who is a longtime resident of Lowry Hill East. Kathy is always discovering the true lives of former residents and their contribution to Minneapolis's past and present.
