Sheridan Minneapolis

Historically, Sheridan has been a working class neighborhood, and was home to Eastern European immigrants. Now it is a bustling residential area with a great commercial district. This community is also home to many art galleries, and a stretch of 13th Avenue that runs through the area is known as “Arts Avenue”. While much of this neighborhood is constructed to allow industrial companies to make use of the Mississippi River, the river banks are slowly but surely developing into an area of recreation. Sheridan has recently seen an increase in the number of young families moving to the area. Like many other Minneapolis neighborhoods, Sheridan residents are committed to improving their community. The Sheridan Neighborhood Organization funded the development of a public library, the refurbishment of a theatre on 13th Avenue, housing rehabilitation and increasing the availability of affordable housing.
