St. Paul’s Notorious Past
Thursday, October 26 Program # 7201.404 $68
Baby Face Nelson...Machine Gun Kelly...Kid Caan...Ma Barker...those are the names Americans--especially Minnesotans, St. Paulites in particular--were familiar with during prohibition. As we enter St. Paul, a costumed gangster guide will hi-jack our motorcoach and takes us on a gangster riding tour. Our guide is the embodiment of the “untouchables” that busted kegs and hustled thugs off to the hoosegow during the days of prohibition. This was an era when things were not always what they seemed...St. Paul was more than a quiet, picturesque river town! Following our “gangster” city tour is a stop at the Wabasha Street Caves. The “Caves” were dug in the early 1800s out of a layer of rock known as St. Peter Sandstone. The sand which forms this rock was once the beach of a warm inland sea, over 400 million years ago. Additionally while in St. Paul, our guide will provide commentary on Rice Park, Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, Children’s Museum, Mickey’s Diner, and the Fitzgerald Theater, home to Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion. A small snack and beverage will be served on the bus.
