Statue of Hiawatha (Longfellow's Hiawatha) carrying Minnehaha at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Image by Mulad. A plaque at the site says: Hiawatha and Minnehaha by Jacob Fjelde Erected in 1911 by means of funds raised through the efforts of Mrs. L.P. Hunt of Mankato, and contributed principally by the school children of Minnesota.
Minnehaha Falls in Minnehaha Park, the Nokomis neighborhood in Minneapolis, MN. The park manages to maintain the feel of an old park while serving its city inhabitants. There are always bikers and walkers on the well-maintained paths, and picnickers in the summer months. Beautiful old trees. A stop on the lightrail station connecting Mall of America to the airport and the city.
