History of Lowry Hill, Minneapolis
In 1870s Minneapolis, for example, the burgeoning milling industry was concentrated along the riverfront and a busy commercial district located just above, around the Hennepin bridgehead. Timber baron Thomas Barlow Walker built a handsome country house for his family almost a half-mile away from this gritty core of activity, way out Hennepin Avenue at 8th Street—near the center of today's Downtown!
As Minneapolis grew explosively beginning in the 1880s, the bustling city soon engulfed the fine houses of its prosperous First Citizens. It was obvious by turn of the twentieth century that maintaining a peaceful residential atmosphere required moving much farther out.
Fortunately for local elites, while most of pioneer Minneapolis was flat as a pancake, beautiful hills rose to the southwest, just beyond Loring Park. This area, which came to be known as Lowry Hill, named after one of the city's pioneers, became a favored setting for the ever-finer houses, indeed mansions, of Minneapolis business leaders. Elite enclaves were built elsewhere, as well, notably along Park Avenue from Franklin to 28th Street, and around the new Art Institute at Fair Oaks, However, Lowry Hill was much larger in area, and has continuously retained its desirable cachet ever since its initial development.

By today, Lowry Hill, which is usually defined as the high ground west of Hennepin and south of Kenwood Parkway, is unquestionably the visually richest residential area in Minneapolis. Three landmark churches and Walker Art Center serve as a symbolic gateway to blocks and blocks of beautiful homes. Few American cities offer such a combination of natural beauty, architectural quality, and cultural resources at the very edge of their downtown.
