You are in Minnehaha Park, west of the creek and near 49th Street. This is the John H. Stevens house, built by the first settler in Minneapolis(1820-1900). It was build in 1850 near where the Hennepin Avenue Bridge is now(downtown) under permission from Fort Snelling. It was called "Ferry Farm", and became a social and community center. Both the city of Minneapolis and Hennepin County were organized in this house. It was moved to this location in 1896.
