Hello and welcome to the official website of the St.
Louis Park Historical Society. We hope that the information
in these pages will be of interest to current and former
residents of the Park and others interested in our City.
Our next meeting will be on May 6, 2014 in the Card Room at the Lenox Community Center, Minnetonka Blvd. at Hampshire Ave. As always, we welcome all members and guests!
Starting in June, our meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of the month at the Historic Milwaukee Road Depot, 37th and Brunswick, at 7:00 pm.
SUMMER HOURS AT THE DEPOT
Each summer Historical Society volunteers open the Milwaukee Road Depot for the public to come and see this 1887 historic building. Hours this summer will not only include Saturdays from 1 to 4 pm, but we’ve added one Wednesday evening from 7 to 8:30 pm each month for those who can’t make it on Saturdays. The schedule is:
· June 4, 7, (not on the 14th because of Parktacular), 21, 28
· July 2, 5, 12, 19, 26
· August 6, 9, 16, 23, 30
· September 3, 6, 13
Come and visit us to do research, see some artifacts, or just talk Park history. The Depot is located at 37th and Brunswick Ave.
Also take a look at an anthology of History Minutes produced by Scott Smith of the City's Community TV Department, called "Back in the Day." They're fun!
