Near North

Location and General Characteristics

The Near North neighborhood is located in the northwest portion of the City of Minneapolis and north of downtown, hence its name. It stretches from the Mississippi River on the east to Penn, Knox, James and Irving avenues on the west, and from West Broadway Avenue on the north to Olson Memorial Highway and 11 th Avenue North on the south.

Sumner Community Library has been a significant architectural and cultural landmark since it first opened to the public Dec. 16, 1915. A Carnegie library, the Tudor Revival-style building has historic designation nationally and locally – on the National Register of Historic Places and with the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission. The library was named after Charles Sumner, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts and an outspoken abolitionist. The library celebrated a grand reopening in January 2005 after a two-year renovation project.
