By chance I recently came upon this two block neighborhood, closed to vehicular traffic tucked away and hidden from a very busy business area on Franklin Avenue. I was charmed by the houses, many of which have the same architectural design yet are distinguished from one another by individual colors with distinctive creative features by the homeowners. While sitting on a bench in its centrally located small park, I met one of the home owners who gave me some information on the neighborhood, saying that, like me, many people are surprised at its existence. If we were in the market for a home rather than downsizing as we are now doing, I would definitely want to move here! Interested in its history I checked the Minnesota Historical Society site and discovered some background historical information. If you are interested too, click here.
