Minnetrista Gathering Place

Minnetrista is a gathering place that focuses on the exploration of nature, history, gardens and art; where vibrant, audience-centered experiences honor our heritage and inspire the future of our region. Minnetrista's forty-acre campus includes beautiful gardens, a modern museum facility, an historic home, Nature Area, numerous sculptures, and a portion of the White River Greenway. Minnetrista, "a gathering place by the water," takes its name from the original F. C. Ball home that once stood at the location of our Center Building. Our name now applies to our entire community, as Minnetrista keeps this name alive through programming, workshops, and exhibits, creating a gathering place for all.
