On October 23, 2020 a new kiosk was installed at the Richard T. Anderson Conservation Area in Eden Prairie by the Eden Prairie Historical Society. The Feldmann family kiosk is located on the walking trail at the main entrance of the park off of Flying Cloud Drive.
The kiosk highlights the rich history of the land. It describes the challenges of immigrant life and the good that immigrants brought to Eden Prairie.
The Feldmann family immigrated to Eden Prairie from Switzerland in the 1860’s. They built their home and farm where the park is today.
Jeff Miller (a direct descendant of the Feldmann family) felt this story should be shared with the community. Miller brought the idea of a kiosk to the Eden Prairie Historical Society.
The Feldmann family kiosk project was a group effort involving Jeff Miller and his family, the Eden Prairie Historical Society, and graphic designer Katie Qualey.
