From Councilmember Cam Gordon.The Park Board has constructed a very nice web site with historical information about the tree and includes a map of the location.
I’ve included the Park Board slide show below but drop by the site to read the history.
All are invited to a community gathering Honoring the Ancient Oak on Franklin Terrace in Minneapolis. This tree, the oldest known in Minneapolis, has died and will soon be taken down. The gathering will be on Sunday, July 11th, beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a ceremony at 7 p.m. at the tree. The ceremony will honor and commemorate the tree through poetry, music and a sharing of stories about the tree. The tree is just a block or so north of the Franklin Avenue Bridge over the Mississippi River on Franklin Terrace.
