Down at the Lake is a history of the Linden Hills neighborhood and the Lake Harriet District, in South Minneapolis. Native American farmers, rumbling streetcars bringing people to the lakes from downtown, grand entertainment pavilions, early cottages, and aggressive land speculators are all part of Linden Hills colorful past. Down at the Lake is a look back at the early recreational, residential, and commercial development of the land that lies between Lakes Calhoun and Harriet. The book chronicles the people and the dreams that transformed the prairie into one of Minneapolis's favorite neighborhoods. It is illustrated with over 175 photographs, and includes four walking tours.
