Hawthorne PDF Print E-mail

The Hawthorne neighborhood is close to downtown, adjacent to the Mississippi River, and is home to North Minneapolis’ “main street” West Broadway and many historic and affordable homes. The neighborhood is a close-knit community that welcomes new residents and is committed to continually improving quality of life through our many neighborhood working committees. There is a lot of exciting new development coming to the area (including the Hawthorne Eco-Village) and residents are working to ensure that the neighborhood’s feel and historic roots are maintained alongside this growth. Farview Park, in the center of Hawthorne, is known for its beautiful panoramic hilltop view of the city, where you can climb up the hill to see majestic old trees frame a stunning view of the Downtown Minneapolis skyline.

Neighborhood Voices

I love my neighborhood because I love my neighbors. There is such a sense of community here that reminds me of the small town I grew up in. Some people have a stigma about my neighborhood, but if they only knew what it was really like, they would be amazed. Go NOMI!
-Alissa

History

Like many parts of Minneapolis, the most extensive development of the neighborhood occurred between 1880 and 1920—following the arrival of the streetcar. The neighborhood takes its name from the famed writer, Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Housing Styles and Types

The Hawthorne neighborhood is home to wide variety of housing styles, with construction years ranging over a span of nearly 125 years. Some of the more notable examples include a significant cluster of historic 1885 concrete-block Victorian homes and rowhouses, 1890's vintage Queen Anne single-family and duplexes, and significant eclectic infill ranging from midcentury-modern to 21st-century new construction. Hawthorne will also soon boast Minneapolis's first and only "Eco-Village," phase one of which will include LEED Certified new single-family housing in a courtyard setting.

“I love being able to walk down the street a block and find a bakery, four restaurants, a co-op for fresh food, and great bus service to get me where I am going.  My family was able to downsize to one car because of our great transportation access.”
