City House

City House

City house

The old grain elevator and sack house on the Mississippi River. On the inside it is an interpretive center with information about how grain is shipped on the river and this history of the building. There is also access to the river side which is a fun place to watch the river from.

This is located in the upper landing river park right across the river from Harriet Island.

Stone steeples

Church

Assumption Church

I had the wrong lens on my camera and this was the best I could do to get the steeples and the leaves in the picture. By the time this picture is posted those leaves will be in the street. The church is on 7th street downtown and always fun to photograph because it is mostly made of stone. The inside is also very lovely.

Historic Minneapolis

Minneapolis City Hall

Minneapolis City Hall

The beautiful¬†Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse was designed by Long and Kees in 1888, is the main building used by the city ¬†of Minneapolis, as well as by Hennepin County, Minnesota. The building is fun to photograph and maybe one day I’ll spend the whole day doing just that.
