Minneapolis Hennepin County

The Whittier neighborhood, on Minneapolis’ near south side, is bound on the north by Franklin Avenue, on the east by I-35W, on the south by Lake Street West and on the east by Lyndale Avenue South. It is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, having been originally settled in the 19th century, and is named for the poet John Greenleaf Whittier. Blaisdell and Third avenues have some of the oldest houses in Minneapolis, and some beautifully restored houses line Stevens Avenue. Almost 40 percent of this neighborhood’s 348 acres are used for multifamily housing, and almost 90 percent of those housing units are renter-occupied. About 60 percent of the land includes a wide variety of uses including eclectic restaurants, neighborhood businesses, an art school and a children’s theater. This neighborhood is home to the prestigious Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
