Theo Wirth House Tours
Theodore Wirth House Tours
Sundays: September 9, September 23, and October 7
Noon to 4 pm
3954 Bryant Ave S, Minneapolis
After being closed to the public for several years, the Theodore Wirth Home and Administration Building will again be open for tours this fall. The Minneapolis Parks Legacy Society (M.P.L.S.), in cooperation with the Minneapolis Park and
Recreation Board, will conduct the tours, which are free and open to the public. The Wirth Home and Administration Building was built for Theodore Wirth, Minneapolis's longest-tenured (1906 - 1935) and most influential park superintendent -- and the primary designer of the Minneapolis Park System. Because of the genius and dedication of Theodore Wirth, the Minneapolis Park System has been recognized as "Best in the Nation" many times and by multiple organizations since 1928.
The Wirth Home and Administration Building was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. The years when the Wirth family lived there (1910-1946) were designated as its period of significance. M.P.L.S. has furnished the house with period artifacts, some of which were owned by Wirth himself.
