Tour Marcy-Holmes history with your smartphone or from your home! Our “Hiding in Plain Sight” Mobile History Tour is available at Minneapolis Historical.

Twenty-seven Marcy-Holmes friends and neighbors narrate the tour and share their thoughts about historic sites mentioned in Penny Petersen’s book “Hiding in Plain Sight: Minneapolis’ First Neighborhood.” This project made possible with a grant from St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board.
