Near North Minneapolis Real Estate
Located in the Northwest of Minneapolis, the neighborhood of Near North is named simply for its location-north of Downtown, on the west bank of the Mississippi. Near North is home to several historical landmarks, including the Sumner Community Library, which opened in 1915. The library is built in the Tudor Revival style and is named for U.S. Senator Charles Sumner.
Most of the Near North area was developed in the late nineteenth century, and there are several industries located along the banks of the river. There are many historic houses in the Old Highland neighborhood, with a handful of massive Victorian Queen Anne homes built in the late 1800s. The neighborhood has Bungalows and Craftsman style homes as well.
