About four miles south of the center of the "City of Flour and Lumber", Minneapolis, in a pretty glen, preserved as a town park, are the graceful Falls of the Minnehaha (Sioux, Mini-haha, "laughing water"), 60 feet high, immortalized by Longellow's "Hiawatha." The picturesque glen extends along the Minnehaha River to the Mississippi and forms part of an extended system of parks covering 1,600 acres and of twenty-five miles of boulevards, taking in several small lakes. Just below the falls the river is spanned by a rustic bridge. A smaller cascade further down stream has been nicknamed the "Minnegiggle." Nearby are the fine grounds of the Minnesota Soldiers' Home. The Minnehaha River is the outlet of Lake Minnetonka, (800 feet above the level of the sea), of singularly irregular outline, encompassed by wooded hills and affording god boating and fishing. :: Freshwater and Marine Image Bank" />
