With degrees in history and political science, Mayor Dave Kleis has made his career educating people on the legacy of the land, while leading residents into a thriving future. For over ten years, Mayor Kleis has been hosting a 90-minute historic trolley tour of the city. Starting at City Hall, the tour winds through St. Cloud’s neighborhoods highlighting the early settlements, people, places, and history. Each tour is different, moving from the St. Cloud’s prison, to the quarries, trails, the historic Pantown neighborhood and downtown. “It’s important to learn, recall, and understand the history of a place,” says the Mayor. The mobile tour brings the past to the present in an engaging way for all.
