Howe

Location and General Characteristics

Howe neighborhood, on Minneapolis' southeast side, is bound on the north by 34th Street, on the east by West River Parkway, on the south by 40 th Street and on the west by Hiawatha Avenue. Howe's east side ends with the Mississippi River, and some of the neighborhood is in the Mississippi River valley. The neighborhood, like its elementary school, is named in honor of Julia Ward Howe, the author of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." She was born in 1819. Most of the neighborhood is made up of residential homes. Many of the homes near the river have been upgraded substantially. More modest homes farther west are being renovated on a block-by-block basis.

Down West River Parkway, along the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway parkway, the neighborhood meets the Mississippi River. Above the river, the Winchell Trail was an ancient Dakota path.
