Downtown dandelion tribute is Sunday


You may hate dandelions, but Harriet Godfrey is again being honored for bringing them here.

The East Bank's Ard Godfrey House, the oldest wood-frame house left standing in the city, will host a tribute to dandelions Sunday, May 16.

The 16th annual "Dandelion Day Celebration" honors Ard's daughter Harriet, the first settler to bring dandelion seeds to the St. Anthony Falls area in 1849. (They actually arrived by mail, after Harriet Godfrey asked a friend in Maine to send her some.)
