Hennepin Avenue Bridge - Photo by Josh Hild
The Hennepin Avenue Bridge, officially it is the Father Louis Hennepin Bridge in honour of the 17th-century explorer Louis Hennepin, who was the first European to discover the Saint Anthony Falls a short distance downriver. The original crossing, which opened as a toll bridge on January 23, 1855, is believed to have been the first permanent span across the Mississippi at any point. First Bridge Park has many photogenic shooting angles of the bridge, Mississippi River and the surrounding cityscape, including the historic Grain Belt Sign. (Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA)
