In the 1880s, Big Willow was the site of St. Albans Mill, a flour mill located in the north section of the park on Minnehaha Creek and was served by a railroad spur. Later, Adam Hannah was the owner of the property where Big Willow Park and the Minnetonka Public Works facility are now located. He built a home on the site in 1913 for his wife and three children. After his death in 1929, his daughter Mary R. E. Hannah lived in the house until she died in 1967. The city had already purchased some of the property in the 1950s, and acquired the rest after Hannah’s death.
