Lake Harriet Professional Review and Guide
"You may have noticed that a few sites in the Twin Cities bear the name Harriet. As a general rule, the Harriet sites in St. Paul are named after Harriet Bishop, who was the first schoolteacher in St. Paul, while the Harriet sites in Minneapolis are named after Harriet Lovejoy, the wife of Colonel Henry Leavenworth. According to legend, Leavenworth missed his wife very much while he was stationed at Fort Snelling, so he named just about anything beautiful that he came across after her."
