Lind-Bohanon has a small town atmosphere where neighbors (many of whom have lived in the neighborhood for generations) pride themselves on knowing each other and taking an active role in improving the neighborhood. Homes are modestly priced, crime is scarce, and the neighborhood has beautiful community gardens, trails, great parks, an elementary school and connections to the Mississippi River. Catch the Grand Rounds just south of the Lind-Bohanon border—where trails travel all the way around Minneapolis. Lyndale Avenue North-between 44th and 49th Avenues—is home to a mix of businesses right in the neighborhood. Lind-Bohanon is connected to many of the surrounding neighborhoods by walking/biking trails and is just a quick trip via I-94 to downtown Minneapolis with its sports, theater, art, restaurant, and retail offerings. In addition to I-94, the neighborhood is also close to I-694 and highways 200 and 252—connecting the neighborhood’s homes to work and social activities in other parts of the region.

Lind-Bohanon was incorporated by the City of Minneapolis in 1887 and the area was home to lumber operations, shingle mills, and farms. The neighborhood is named after Jenny Lind (the “Swedish Songbird” who performed for P.T. Barnum’s circus for many years and for whom the elementary school is named) and Bohanon (a family who helped establish the neighborhood). After World War II, the neighborhood housed many returning veterans—many of which still have family in the neighborhood today.

“A few of the reasons I love Dayton’s Bluff: eagles building a nest in the tree across the street; the breathtaking views of downtown; immediate access to hiking and biking trails; two minutes to the Farmers Market; eclectic architecture; and engaged and involved neighbors.”
