Historic John H. Stevens House Museum

Birthplace of Minneapolis and Hennepin County

As a special gift to Minneapolis and visitors,

all regular tours and special events are FREE this summer!

 

Come to Historic John H. Stevens House Museum and explore the history of  Minneapolis, in the place where ordinary people dreamed up a brand new city and turned it into reality.   Learn about the courage and imagination that turned a lonely prairie into a bustling city!

Hear about how Minneapolis school children saved our history by pulling the House to its present site!
