The Great Falls, dubbed “St Anthony Falls” by Father Louis Hennepin, evolved during the Ice Age and became the birthplace of Minneapolis. A spiritual place for Native Americans, and especially Dakota people, the Falls have always been a magnet for their beauty and power. European settlers harnessed the water power for lumber and flour mill industries that developed along the banks of the Mississippi, but years of over-use marred the landscape. Today St. Anthony Falls are part of the Mississippi River Historic District.
