|One of Minneapolis’ most
celebrated communities, Uptown is a distinct group of four vibrant
neighborhoods that have long offered a host of cultural treasures
to residents and visitors alike. In addition to the entertainment
provided by the area's nightspots and lakes, Uptown also has a
long history of presenting its residents with a wide range of
housing choices, schools, churches and temples, parks,
restaurants, and stores. This book uses rare photographs to
document and celebrate Uptown’s development from a 19th-century
summer retreat and agricultural area into a thriving metropolitan
business, entertainment, and residential district.
