R&C 2012: Archaeology of the John Orth & Germania Breweries

Filed under: Podcasts, Review and Compliance — Joe Hoover @ 2:50 pm

Review and Compliance Cultural Resource Management Seminar presentation by Michelle Terrell of theĀ Two Pines Resource Group.

A paved parking lot and the lawns of a city park hide from sight the remains of two of Minneapolis’ foremost breweries. In 1890, the John Orth and Germania breweries merged with two other breweries to form the Minneapolis Brewing Company (aka Grain Belt). This presentation will provide an overview of the history of these breweries and how documentary and archaeological research led to the identification and evaluation of these sites. It will also discuss how these significant discoveries are being integrated into development plans.
