Over 150 years ago, Henry Wells and William Fargo founded a company that has become a legendary part of America. On the skyway of the Cesar Pelli designed Wells Fargo Tower in downtown Minneapolis, Wells Fargo presents its Midwestern heritage. The Wells Fargo Museum in Minneapolis showcases a restored 1863 Concord Stagecoach, two working telegraph stations and antique telephones. Exhibits trace the company's express and banking services since the California Gold Rush of 1849: frontier transportation, including the stagecoach and railroad; 19th century communication inventions; and a replica of an old-time town bank. Visitors at the Wells Fargo History Museum can climb aboard a reproduction stagecoach.
