Ice House Plaza

It’s always hard to lose a historic building, and sometimes after the loss the legend of that building grows, one such building is the Metropolitan Building in Minneapolis. You’ve heard all about the story from us (http://archive.mnpreservation.org/2011/12/08/metropolitan-building-anniversary/) over time. 2011 marked the 50th anniversary of the start of demolition of this famous lost landmark. A few years back there was a significant effort to repurpose the historic stones from the Metropolitan Building that had been found in a local quarry in Delano. Unfortunately, those plans never came to fruition despite the efforts of many; however, we’re excited to share this documentary with you.
