Southdale Gets National Attention as Influential Building
When Southdale Center was built in Edina in 1956, it was the nation's first enclosed regional shopping center.
56 years later, it's being recognized as influential.
A new PBS documentary names ten American buildings that changed the way we live.
Southdale is one of those buildings.
