Windom Park

The Windom Park neighborhood of Minneapolis is bounded on the north by Lowry Avenue NE, on the west by Central Avenue NE, on the south by 18th Avenue NE and on the east by New Brighton Boulevard. Windom Park is named after William Windom, who served from the mid- to late 1800s as a United States senator from Minnesota and as secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury.

This is a mainly residential neighborhood; single-family dwellings tend to predominate in the eastern quadrant, while multifamily buildings are a feature in the western quadrant, particularly in the vicinity of Central Avenue. Central Avenue, the neighborhood’s western border, is a very active commercial corridor. Many ethnic restaurants line the street, showing how new immigrants are reshaping the neighborhood.
