— Saint Anthony Falls Heritage Trail —This 1893 map shows the system of tunnels that ran under the West Side Milling District-part of the complex waterworks that brought energy from the 50-foot drop of the falls into the mills. Water from theriver above the falls flowed through gates into a man-made canal. Next, the water streamed through headraces to turn the turbines that drove the machinery, eventually returning to the river throughtailraces to complete the circuit of energy without combustion.
