On October 5th from 10 am – 2 pm, the Cannon Falls History Society Museum will be moderating Historical Guided Tours of Cannon Falls on a trolley. These tours will start at the Cannon Falls Historical Society Museum, 206 W Mill St.
To avoid parking issues, there will be another trolley that will be traveling between Ferndale Market to the 3 hotels, on to Artisan Plaza and up to the City Parking Lot on Hwy 19 next to the Little Cannon River. This trolley will be making this loop every 30 minutes to help the public move around our community to all of our events.
