Holland

The Holland neighborhood is located in the Northeast community of Minneapolis. The neighborhood’s northern extent is 27th Avenue NE and the southern boundary is along 17th and 19th avenues NE. Central Avenue NE is the eastern extent and University Avenue NE is the western boundary.

The neighborhood and its elementary school are named after Josiah G. Holland, an American educator and editor born in 1819 in Massachusetts. He was well known for Timothy Titcomb’s Letters, a column he wrote for a newspaper in Springfield, Massachusetts.

The Holland neighborhood is predominately residential, and more than 75 percent of the homes were built before 1920. Holland does have some commercial and retail areas, mainly along Central Avenue. The neighborhood has other amenities including Jackson Square Park, Edison Senior High School and a Minneapolis public library branch. The neighborhood was a popular destination for Eastern Europeans emigrating at the beginning of the 20th century
