Discover Stevens Square & Loring Heights
A century ago, after the Minneapolis milling industry had come to dominate the regional economy, it was said that Lumber lived on Lowry Hill and Flour lived around Fair Oaks Park. As such sayings go, this was pretty accurate: in the early twentieth century, Pillsburys and their business associates did build mansions around Fair Oaks, while up on the ridge along Mount Curve, impressive houses for the Walkers and Wintons and other pioneering lumber barons dotted the ridge overlooking Downtown.
Of course, the Minneapolis elite also included bankers, publishers, and the owners of prosperous non-milling businesses. Some of them built mansions along Park Avenue, a few of which remain today, notably the Swan Turnblad Mansion at 26th and Park, a marvelous folly built by the publisher of a chain of Swedish-language newspapers.
But others split the difference (in location) between their milling peers, building imposing homes on what is now known as Loring Heights, midway between Mount Curve and Fair Oaks.
Stevens Square and Loring Heights Condos & Homes
As these side-by-side neighborhoods filled out with mansions for local "name" families, other prominent if a-bit-less-exalted business and civic leaders followed, building handsome, often-pretentious homes nearby. This accounts for the remarkable swath of architectural landmarks extending from Mount Curve, along Groveland Avenue and nearby streets, to the Art Institute. This two-mile ensemble included not just houses, but "downtown" churches for Episcopalians, Methodists, and Congregationalists.
Today, the Stevens Square-Loring Heights district offers a broad range of amenity in a relatively small area. Conversions and new condominiums in the Groveland-Ridgewood enclave take advantage of existing physical amenity, hills and architecture. Around Stevens Square, which is located just outside the elite swath, much-less-expensive housing is available, from renovated walk-ups to efficient new condos.
