Fun Note: The Wabasha Street Caves are the only remaining restored Gangster Era site in Saint Paul. They offer historic tours of extensive caves carved into the hillside in long abandoned mining ventures in 1800's. Later, the caves were used as a mushroom farm, and then developed as a Restaurant Casino and Gangsters' Hotspot during the 1930's prohibition era. Newspapers reported an unsolved gangland murder at the casino. Tour guides point out the bullet holes. Some believe the caves are haunted by the murdered mobsters whose bodies were never found... Check out this fascinating spot! It's more than Thursday Night Swing Dancing! https://www.wabashacaves.com/
