Longfellow Minneapolis Minnesota is a neighborhood of Minneapolis located in the southeastern part of the city. Longfellow Minneapolis Minnesota also includes five smaller neighborhoods. These are, Hiawatha, Howe, Longfellow, Seward and Cooper. This neighborhood was named about the famous poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The poet's famous poem "The Song of Hiawatha" included Minnehaha Falls which is located in the southern tip of Longfellow Minneapolis Minnesota. There is even a Hiawatha Avenue located here, which is really Highway 55. This road actually leads right into downtown Minneapolis, and if going south, to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport. Some of the interesting attractions for the visitors are the Danish American Center, Minnehaha Academy and the Longfellow House. Minnehaha Falls is still an attraction, although not as popular as it once was. There will be new apartment buildings and condos built where the factories and grain silos once stood in Longfellow Minneapolis Minnesota. Most of the homes in this neighborhood were built in the 1920s and are the Craftsman, bungalow style homes. There were also Sears Catalog Homes which were actually ready-to-assemble homes to have the immigrant population of this area have an affordable place to live. These early homeowners were mainly Scandinavians who were first and second generation. There has been much change and modernization in Longfellow Minneapolis Minnesota, and much more to come in the future.
