Minneapolis Tangletown Neighborhood
Tangletown is a neighborhood in the city of Minneapolis which is named for its curving, graceful streets. It is primarily residential but it is home as well to a number of businesses such as gift shops, restaurants and convenience stores. Tangletown is safe and the residents celebrate events such as the 4th of July in Fuller Park located at the heart of the Community and Earth Day.
The major bus lines in the city run along every border of Tangletown and the major roads are offering residents with easy access to the rest of Minneapolis including downtown which is only ten minutes away. Tangletown is bordered by the 46th Street on the North, 54th Street and Diamond Lake Road on the South, Lyndale Avenue on the West and Interstate 35W on the east.
William Washburn in 1886 who was the lumber and milling tycoon and former senator of the US from Minnesota along with other investors, bought two hundred acres of farmland in close proximity of Minnehaha Creek for an affluent residential development which will be later on called the Washburn Park. But the tough times of the economy stalled this development and in the early 1900s, the property was sold with development that continued through the 1920s.
Although most homes in the neighborhood were built between the 1910 and 1920s and are in the Revival Period styles of that time which were mainly Colonial and Tudor, there are Victorian homes also from the 1880s, the largest cluster or Lustron metal homes of the city. These homes were constructed in the late 1940s out of pre-fabricated steel to home returning veterans of the World War. They are located along Nicollet Avenue and modernist homes from the 1950s that were constructed along the Minnehaha Creek.
