St. Anthony West Print

Historic St. Anthony West is located on the east bank of the Mississippi River. It is the gateway to the Minneapolis Arts District and features a variety of affordable housing options – from gracious and historic 1880s homes to charming ramblers of the 1960s and 1970s to modern townhomes and condos. From this prime neighborhood, walk or ride a bike to downtown Minneapolis; a bus ride is less than 5 minutes from the heart of downtown. We feature a 28-acre park along the river and several quaint owner-run restaurants, all just a five-minute walk from the bustling, popular East Hennepin business district. Seven churches of various denominations help make us a prime place to live, work, play and worship. We are proud to be the home of Minneapolis’ only “Yacht Club.”

Established in 1849 as the Village of St. Anthony Falls, the neighborhood was incorporated into the city of Minneapolis in 1858. Proximity to the Mississippi River and sawmill/manufacturing jobs along the river brought the first wave of Eastern European immigrants to the Midwest, a proud tradition still visible today. We continue to be a portal to immigration for the newest Americans. More information about neighborhood history is available at:
