In May 2023, the Minnesota Legislature included $2.2 million for the Water Tower Barn Arts and Heritage Center in a statewide capital investment bill that came together in the final hours of the session.
Scandia Heritage Alliance (SHA) envisions bringing back the historic Water Tower Barn (dismantled in 2014) as an Arts & Heritage Center and telling the important story of its role in our early 20th century economy. The state’s only remaining tankhouse, this unique barn stood behind the Scandia Mercantile and provided water to early businesses and residents.
