Research to Update and Expand Old Highland Neighborhood Walking Tour, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Dow, Candace

The geographic area for this study in North Minneapolis covered the 30 blocks served by the Old Highland Neighborhood Association (OHNA) bounded on the north by West Broadway Avenue, on the east by Aldrich Avenue North, on the south by Plymouth Avenue North, and on the west by the alley west of Girard Avenue North. Appendix 1 has the neighborhood map. The project sought information about the 290 buildings in the residential area only. OHNA had two goals for the project: (1) To build awareness of and generate further interest in the historic resources in the Old Highland neighborhood and (2) To update and expand the Walking Tour of Old Highland developed years ago. OHNA emphasized Goal 2 and divided work into two phases. Phase 1, in summer 2008, focused on research to update and expand the Walking Tour Guide. Properties in the updated and expanded Guide will provide a base for a possible historic or conservation district designation in Old Highland. If Minneapolis creates zoning or other regulations for conservation districts, OHNA would like to explore the desirability and feasibility of having a conservation district within Old Highland.
