History of Uptown Minneapolis
Before the Second World War, the corner of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue was the preeminent Minneapolis commercial center, after Downtown. As the intersection of major Southside streetcar lines, Lake and Hennepin had been a busy transfer point since early in the twentieth century. So it was not only a convenient place to pick up everyday essentials at Hove's grocery store (Lund's after the mid-1960s), but was also easily accessible to tens of thousands of South Minneapolis residents for after-hours leisure pursuits. With two first-run movie theaters and numerous shops, you could do everything from banking to bowling at Lake and Hennepin. Truly this was an uptown, in the classic prewar sense of a significant neighborhood complement to downtown. And the label stuck: Lake and Hennepin has been Uptown for most of a lifetime.
Naturally, the commercial district around the intersection has seen periodic change since the Second World War. Unavoidably, its prominence diminished with postwar metropolitan growth, and the emergence of competing shopping centers in the southwestern suburbs. And of course, with ever-increasing auto use after the war, any streetcar or bus transfer point was less-important.
Even so, Lake and Hennepin survived pretty much intact into the 1980s, when Calhoun Square transformed the area into a chic retail-entertainment district. Uptown has continuously evolved over the past quarter-century, and is currently undergoing its next re-imaging.
By now, there are three definitions of Uptown. One of these is the several-block retail-entertainment district centered on the intersection. The second definition, colloquially the Uptown Area, includes adjacent city neighborhoods, especially those blocks within an easy walk of the corner. Yet another Uptown also includes those who regularly patronize Uptown—who reflexively think of the retail-entertainment area as "their center—but live well beyond walking distance, some in the suburbs.
This extended popularity is easy to understand. Not only is Uptown a uniquely dynamic center, attracting a vibrant street scene in temperate weather, but its location close to the lakes, in the affluent southwest virtually guarantees that Uptown, center and community, will remain vital and desirable into the foreseeable future.
