HIAWATHA NEIGHBORHOOD (LONGFELLOW ASSOCIATION): Hiawatha is a neighborhood within the larger Longfellow community in Minneapolis. It is bordered by Howe to the north, the Mississippi River to the east, Minnehaha Park and Minnehaha neighborhood to the south, and Ericsson and Standish to the west. The neighborhood names come from the “Song of Hiawatha” an 1855 epic poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow which features Native American characters. The epic relates the fictional adventures of an Ojibwe warrior named Hiawatha and the tragedy of his love for Minnehaha, a Dakota woman. A statue depicting the characters resides on the banks of the creek in the Minnehaha Falls Park just a few blocks south of your neighborhood. A neighborhood that has welcoming neighbors, thriving independent businesses, great parks, trails, and the Mississippi River Gorge.
NEIGHBORHOOD SHOPS & RESTAURANTS: Hiawatha is home to small corner commercial districts that still exist where the streetcar used to run in the first half of the 20th Century. The neighborhood is also home to several noteworthy eating establishments, easily accessible by foot or bike. Our favorite is Sea Salt, the perfect seafood restaurant on the banks of the Minnehaha Falls.
SCHOOLS: Your home resides within the Minneapolis Public School District, specifically within the boundaries of the Hiawatha Elementary K-2, Howe Elementary School 3-5, Sanford Middle and Roosevelt High School.
MINNEHAHA CREEK & FALLS: Minnehaha Creek meanders its way across the southern border of the neighborhood, and is banked by ample green space and park benches for its neighbors to enjoy the serenity of its sights and sounds. Connected to the Chain of Lakes and Minnehaha Falls by bike and pedestrian paths, this is yet another attraction to enjoy right in your own neighborhood.
LAKE NOKOMIS: Minneapolis is the City of Lakes, and the Minnehaha neighborhood is 2 miles from the banks of Lake Nokomis. Enjoy beachside dining at Sand Castle, try your hand (or paddle) at Paddlesculpt a “yoga on the paddle board” experience, watch Nokomis turn into the Pond Hockey Tournament Arena with endless games to watch on the frozen lake. Walk, bike or skate your Lake Nokomis!
CONVENIENT COMMUTING: Whether it’s by bus, light rail or car, the neighborhood is conveniently located near the Hiawatha light rail, MTC bus lines, Hwy 55 (Hiawatha Ave). Just minutes away from both downtown and the airport, it’s easy to get home to Minnehaha!
GRAND ROUNDS BIKING TRAIL: Steps away from your new home is the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway System. The 51 mile off-street Minneapolis bike trail loop takes you past the Chain of Lakes, Mississippi River, Minnehaha Falls and downtown riverfront. Riding the Grand Rounds is as close to a comprehensive Minneapolis bike tour as you’ll find. Whether you want beautiful scenery and skyline views, historic sites and museums, or to explore the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, you’ll find it on the Grand Rounds.
