About the Heritage Board
In 1988 the Minnesota State Legislature established the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board for the purpose of providing interpretive resources for the public within the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Zone encircling the Minneapolis central riverfront, an area rich in natural, scenic, recreational and historic elements. Since 1988, the Heritage Board has funded, guided, and spurred countless developments and interpretive efforts along the Minneapolis Riverfront.
See the Minnesota State Statute which established the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board.
Since the adoption of the 1990 Interpretive Plan, the Heritage Board played a role in implementing and funding a number of riverfront projects.
