“Part of Minneapolis History and Easy to Access”

John H Stevens House Museum
Ranked #165 of 192 things to do in Minneapolis
Attraction details
Reviewed August 13, 2017

July 28, 2017 - A quick blue lite rail ride from downtown Minneapolis, we visited Minnehaha Park and right at the entrance is the Stevens House. Over 134 years, the house has been moved four times and finally is at this picturesque location. There is a statue of John H. Stevens very close to the house.

Very peaceful setting and well worth a visit while you are visiting the Minnehaha Park and waterfall.

Unfortunately the house was not open for tours so we walked around the grounds and read the state and city history plaques. This would be a nice place to sit and eat your lunch on a warmer day.

It's so close to the falls park you should walk over to see it. It's on the way to dairy Queen. Nice old house.

Located in Minnehaha Park, it's a pretty landmark to see and the flower garden on the hill behind is quite beautiful and serene.

We found a statue of Colonel John Harrington Stevens and his house while visiting Minnehaha Park. The house was closed for tours when we arrived so we just walked around the exterior grounds. The gentleman was important since he was the first settler in the city of Minneapolis. The house was important sine it was where both the city of Minneapolis and Hennepin County were organized.

I've uploaded the correct photos of the house and statue to this page.
