Nicollet Island Pavilion is one of the premier venues for receptions, celebrations and events of all kinds in Minneapolis! Mintáhoe Catering & Events is proud to operate the Nicollet Island Pavilion and offer this lovingly restored historic landmark as a venue for your very own historic occasion!
Built in 1886 by Lintges and Connell & Company, Nicollet Island Pavilion began as a one-story frame building called the William Bros. Boiler Works. In 1893 a major fire consumed the Boiler Works and a new brick structure was constructed to replace the destroyed building.
The building went through various stages of ownerships until 1976 when the Minneapolis Park Board acquired most of Nicollet Island. In 1983 Nicollet Island Park was developed and the Pavilion was used as a simple picnic shelter. Today, the Nicollet Island Pavilion is a gem in the Twin Cities community, rich with charm and history.
