AAA Editor Notes

The Landing is at 2187 E. CR 101. This mix of original historic buildings and reproductions re-creates a mid-19th-century community at a time when settlers were establishing farmsteads and villages on the Minnesota prairie. On weekends, costumed interpreters re-create the life of Minnesota River Valley settlers. Folkways of the Holidays, which take place on weekends in December, celebrate the valley's cultural heritage and holiday traditions. Note: Historic buildings can only be accessed on guided tours. A self-guiding map of the site is available at the visitor center at the main (east) entrance of the park. Horse-drawn trolley service is offered on a limited schedule; otherwise visitors should plan on walking from 1 to 2 miles to see everything. Guided tours are available. Recreational activities are permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
Park (river trail and grounds) free when The Landing is open. Admission to public programs (living-history demonstrations, site events and Folkways of the Holidays) $8; $5 (ages 2-17 and 65+). Separate guided tour fee $5 per person.
