History Channel Features Faribault Icon- the Tilt-A-Whirl!
Did you happen to see the American Restoration episode called “Boy Meets Whirl” on the History Channel in August?
The episode featured the refurbishment of a tilt-a-whirl, which as you should know was invented and manufactured in Faribault for over 80 years.
Now you can see that exact Tilt-A-Whirl on display in downtown Faribault, right now it is on display in front of Mill City Restaurant and soon it will move to its permanent home on Central Avenue (Downtown Faribault) next to Burkhartzmeyer’s Shoe store.
The Fishing Opener in Minnesota is May 10 and Faribault should be the place you should be. Why? Faribault has 10 lakes to choose from!

Faribault was one of just 3 southern Minnesota locations to be a host city. Contact the Faribault Tourism office or look over the Lakes, Camping & Resort page in our brand new 2014 Visitor Guide for more information. The fish are biting here!
