Take a tour from the only 5-star tour provider offering a complete look into the incredible buildings, storied past and (sometimes famous) people of downtown Winona, Minnesota.

Just some of the things you'll discover:

  • the water god that once traveled the Mississippi
  • the fire that wiped out almost the entire city
  • Winona's Egyptian temple (with buried treasure!)  
  • a waterworks system decorated in gold
  • creepy grotesques (don't worry, they don't bite)
  • the Winonans who kept lions as pets (they did bite)
  • incredible architectural details

        and much more!


Pointour's walking tours take you past:

  • the factory of one of the country's largest grain businesses
  • the first (and small) store of a fastener distributor now valued at $15 billion (which is a lot of money)
  • a bank building considered to be an important contribution to the architecture of the early 20th century (in other words, it's pretty)
  • the former silent movie theater that showed pictures of Winona's Charlie Chaplin impersonator

        and lots of other historic and fascinating structures!
