After decades of falling population, the number of Minneapolis residents has rebounded due to an apartment construction boom. In addition, Minneapolis has opened new sports stadiums, the Guthrie Theater, the downtown garbage incinerator and many new parks along the Mississippi River. How was there room for all this new development? The answer is railroad land, much of it vacant since the 1970s. Historian Aaron Isaacs will take you on a then-and-now photo tour of the railroads and what replaced them.
