Minneapolis in Hennepin County, Minnesota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
The House of John H. Stevens
— Saint Anthony Falls Heritage Trail —
For a time, John Stevens and his wife, Frances Helen, had no white neighbors, but they recalled often walking to find Indians camping nearby on their way to sell food and buy goods in the shops of St. Anthony across the river. In 1896 the Stevens house was removed to Minnehaha Park, where it still stands.
Erected by the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board.
