   The story of the Minneapolis Riverfront will come alive in this unique program led by master storyteller Richard Rousseau. Mr. Rousseau will spin three tales that weave the history of Saint Anthony Falls with the expectations of the present—in three different historic spaces within Mill City Museum. Between stories participants will walk to the next location while learning about the Washburn A Mill that is the home of Mill City Museum. This tour is well suited for those who enjoy the art of storytelling and those for whom a traditional walking tour involves too much time on one’s feet.
