Tenant Farmer’s House Removal

Charles A. Lindbergh State Park

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is accepting comments through Sept. 22 on the Tenant Farmer’s House Removal, Charles A. Lindbergh State Park (Project) Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) to address the removal of the tenant farmer’s house at Charles A. Lindbergh State Park in Little Falls, in Morrison County.

The purpose of the proposed project is to demolish the structure and remove the debris to eliminate a public safety hazard. The structure is a safety hazard due to its state of disrepair and proximity to popular park attractions and amenities.

The tenant farmer’s house was the home of the early-1900s tenant on the farm owned by Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, namesake of the park and father of the famous aviator. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Charles A. Lindbergh State Park and Lindbergh House Historic District.
