Encompassing 30 blocks of North Minneapolis, this Victorian-era enclave was largely developed at the turn of the century, when architects designed residences for upper-class merchants operating businesses along its main thoroughfares. This neighborhood is impressive for its number of restored Queen Annes in excellent condition. Most of the restoration has been done by hand by local residents and homeowners, using traditional methods, making Old Highland one of Minneapolis's true preservation success stories.
