This complex looms large on the northeast Minneapolis landscape above the Mississippi River. The cluster of brick and limestone buildings extends an entire block. With its monolithic arches, attic arcades and protruding piers, it casts the ominous presence of a great European castle. The main building or brew house was built in 1891. In 1987, the city of Minneapolis purchased the property to preserve this historic link to its past. The facility is currently used for a variety of public functions including wine and beer tasting receptions.
Once the home of railroad baron, James J. Hill, the Minnesota Historical Society now owns this mansion. Tours provide a glimpse into what astonishing wealth could buy at the turn of the 19th century. It contains 42 rooms including 13 bathrooms, 22 fireplaces and a 100-foot reception hall. Stained glass windows, an enormous pipe organ and intricately carved woodwork are just a few of the highlights. The two-story art gallery is worth the price of admission alone. Tours depart every half-hour.

The first nine holes were opened in 1928, the second nine a year later. A beautiful winding creek decorates the course; however, the relatively flat course has poor drainage. This course has small trees and hard-to-read, undulating greens. The creek comes into play on three holes. Highland Park is the longest of the city courses measuring about 6200 yards. A pro shop is on site for your convenience - happy teeing!

A pair of carillon towers flanks the building's Summit Avenue faade and the sanctuary seats 3000 worshipers. Guided tours are offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1p.
The land for Hiawatha Park was acquired in 1922. After dredging operations, nine holes were opened in 1934 and another nine a year later. The ponds come into play on seven holes.

The 18-hole course is built alongside the shore of Lake Hiawatha. Open daily, call for details.
