When you visit Wabasha, you'll be stepping back in history to the first settlement in Minnesota! Wabasha is one of the oldest cities on the entire upper Mississippi River.  It has been occupied continuously since 1826 with government records conclusively establishing Wabasha as the first city in Minnesota in 1830.

Wabasha's downtown is a turn-of-the-century delight!  Most of the buildings are on the National Registry of Historic Building.  Visitors will find a mix of shops that range from antique wedding kimonos at Wind Whisper West... to Mississippi pearl jewelry at Jewels on the River... to garden supplies at Gerkins Town & Country.

You'll be surprised at how much there is to do!  The National Eagle Center showcases preservation efforts in the Upper Mississippi River Valley.  The Historic Anderson House Hotel, the oldest hotel in Minnesota, has reopened.  And Slippery's, from the movies, "Grumpy Old Men" and "Grumpier Old Men," is just up the street!  You're invited to come and explore.
