Remembering the Bohemian Flats: One Place, Many Voices

Bohemian Flats is site of current UMN West Bank campus.

 This exhibit, organized by the Heritage Studies Collaborative, explores the many perspectives on the people and the conditions of this early immigrant neighborhood adjacent to the Mississippi River. Through photographs, newspaper clippings, maps and surveys, visitors can “journey” down the 79 steps from the bluffs to the flats, and see how a community in the middle of the city could simultaneously be at the margins of the river, of society, and of historical memory. Free and open to the public. 

Runs through November 1 at the Mill City Museum, 704 S. 2nd St, Minneapolis
