By popular demand, the Fridley Historical Society will again host the Manomin on the Mississippi tour. It will occur during 49er Day on the afternoon of Saturday June 16th. Stops on the narrated bus tour include the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts and the historic Reidel House. We will update the next newsletter once we finalize the details.
Board a coach bus at the Fridley History Center and take a narrated tour of an area that 170 years ago was known as Manomin. We now know it as Fridley. Through narration, meeting some characters of the 1850s, and visiting some historic landmarks along the way, you’ll learn some of Fridley’s early history.
Walk the banks of the Mississippi River when we stop for
lunch at the historic Riedel Estate before continuing on to
another site before finishing the tour and returning to the Fridley History Center.
Limit 45 — Registration must be made through the 2018 Fridley Park & Recreation Activities Guide before June 8th — $25
