Welcome to Little Falls. It is a pleasure to welcome you to our city of old fashion charm and historic mansions, century homes, historic churches and numerous attractions.

We have century homes and historic mansions such as the Rosenmeier and Linden Hill Mansions that are awesome to tour as you will feel like you stepped back in time with the furniture, collections and architectural design.

We are proud to have the Pine Grove Zoo in our backyard along with Charles A. Lindbergh’s adventures to share with guests; as he lived in Little Falls for his boyhood and we will share many summertime stories from long ago. We would like to have you experience our town as if you lived here yourself, come and enjoy over 18 parks and a long stretch of the Mississippi River Bicycle Route through our community with a magnificent view of the rushing water at our Dam on the Mississippi.

We are located in Central Minnesota and our neighboring communities offer numerous opportunities as well: • Experience the Swanville Mid Summer Carnival and make memories in Morrison County • Reminisce in Randall and visit the downtown area for a vintage shopping experience • Royalton holds the secret “treasures” to enjoy on your journey • Dine lakeside with great views in Lincoln Lakes • Explore Pierz and check out downtown shopping and “great golfing” • Ride the trails as you cruise through Fort Ripley on a recreational vehicle

Just around the corner we are honored to have Camp Ripley Military Base which has 18 miles of undeveloped river front and breathtaking views. It is home to the Minnesota Military Museum and has a great environmental program for the community and guests to enjoy. We are on the Mississippi River and we have over 2002 miles of trail for snowmobiles, bicycles, ATV’s and we love the outdoors with multiple campgrounds and opportunities to stay overnight and enjoy a weekend getaway or stay for awhile. If you love the outdoors and want a touch of history, walk through the Minnesota Fishing Museum and enjoy the view.

LITTLE FALLS MURALS AND FRESCOS 320.616.4959 | www.littlefallsmn.com Created by artist Frank Gosiak, two large colored murals, depicting the logging era and main street Little Falls in the early 1900’s, grace the façade of the Hennepin Paper Co. warehouse on Broadway Avenue West across from Cass Gilbert Depot. A third Gosiak mural “Door Into the Past” depicts the history of Little Falls evolving into present day Little Falls. The mural is located at the intersection of Broadway Avenue East and Second Street NE. Little Falls is the home of two public fresco paintings, both created by artist Charles Kapsner, installed at Lindbergh Elementary School. The first, completed in 1994, is called “The Stewardship” and portrays the life, work and values of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr., the American aviator, who lived here as a boy. The second is a 19’ x 41’ monument entitled “Beginnings”, which tells the story of Central Minnesota’s history. This piece was completed in May 2001. The frescoes can be viewed by appointment.

Cover story Without a doubt, the most famous native of Little Falls is Charles A. Lindbergh, an internationally renowned aviator and environmentalist. As the Mississippi built its strength from the streams of central Minnesota, so too were Lindbergh’s own beginnings shaped by his experiences in Little Falls.

CHARLES A. LINDBERGH HISTORIC SITE 320.616.5421 | www.mnhs.org/lindbergh

In 1931, the Lindbergh family gave the entire 110 acres and summer house to the State of Minnesota in recognition of the elder Charles A. Lindbergh’s life and accomplishments. In 1969, the house and 17 adjacent acres were placed under the management of the Minnesota Historical Society to preserve and interpret the Lindbergh story. Today, visitors can see the 1906 house with original artifacts throughout and see Charles A. Lindbergh’s evolution from an ordinary boy to environmentalist. Charles Lindbergh’s 1927 flight from New York to Paris launched an aviation revolution and making Lindbergh one of the most famous American’s in the 20th Century. Charles A. Lindbergh’s childhood experiences shaped the lasting legacy he would create through his work in the 20th century. The Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site is a National Historic Landmark featuring the fully furnished boyhood home of the famous aviator, visitor center exhibits, including a “Spirit of St. Louis” flight simulator, and an interpretive trail along the river.

Sacred Heart Chapel •

Sacred Heart Chapel, located within St. Francis Convent, was built in 1943. A Romanesque influence can be seen in its pillars, rounded arches and the symbolism of the stained glass windows. The architecture, with its miniature angled tower and raftered ceilings, was influenced by the style of mission chapels erected by a pioneer Franciscan priest in Mexico and California. 116 8th Avenue SE., 320.632.0695 - visit www.fslf.org.

These rock formations are extremely rare and are only found in a few areas of the world. The Staurolites are much sought after as good luck pieces, charms, and natural curiosities.
