Location and General Characteristics
The Victory neighborhood is located in north Minneapolis west of Penn and Newton avenues, east of Xerxes Avenue, between Dowling Avenue on the south and the Humboldt Industrial Area on the north. The neighborhood was named after Victory Memorial, a memorial to World War I veterans and fallen soldiers. Victory Memorial Drive is part of the Grand Rounds parkway and bike path circuit. The neighborhood contains vintage homes from the 1920s and 1930s through the 1960s, some which are being rehabilitated today. There are many first-time homebuyers in Victory.
Victory Memorial, located on Victory Memorial Drive (along the Minneapolis Grand Rounds, an official U.S. Scenic Byway) was constructed to commemorate all local soldiers who died in World War I.
