Historic Mill District Professional Review and Guide
"The Historic Mill District is not a neighborhood but a confluence of historic Minneapolis communities surrounding the city’s quintessential life source: waterpower from St. Anthony Falls. Energy was a limited commodity in the 19th century, and the abundant hydroelectric source provided an accessible, affordable, and consistent supply. As a result, industry—followed by communities—developed on both east and west banks of the energy-rich Mississippi River."
