(St. Paul, MN) -- The Island Station smokestack is now history after standing for over 90 years on the St. Paul riverfront. It came down in an implosion yesterday morning to clear the way for new development along the Mississippi River. The power plant had been vacant for more than four decades. St. Paul River Walk of Scottsdale, Arizona purchased the land last year for just over four-million-dollars, but redevelopment plans have not been announced.
