The city’s riverfront has gone through dramatic changes since its early days when the St. Anthony Falls area was first settled.

The falls — the only naturally occurring waterfall on the Mississippi — drew people to the area and powered the city’s sawmills. The falls partially collapsed in 1869, but its hydropower continued to support the city’s flour mills, which thrived until the late 1910s.
