The Old Soldier's Home was located not far from Minni - Ha - Ha -Falls in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The home was built in 1888  as for the good deeds of our Civil War Veterans. The Home was built with a beautiful landscape and views for one to enjoy and was intended for quiet and relaxation for the old veterans in need. The home was not a medical facility at that time. The home was suited more for ones comfort. It was said that there were reunions of Civil War Veterans there and old soldiers spent there last days there as well and among them were certainly G.A.R members as well.
