Late last year, the City of Minneapolis received a grant to resurvey the Fifth Street Southeast Historic District.

From the City of Minneapolis' website: https://www.minneapolismn.gov/resident-services/property-housing/preservation/historic-preservation/current-studies/fifth-street-southeast/:



The Fifth Street Southeast Historic District was designated in 1976. In 1980, we finalized the boundary and determined contributing and non-contributing resources. More research is needed to understand the district’s history.

We received a federal grant and hired New History to:

  • Research the history of the historic district
  • Take photographs of each property from the public right-of-way
  • Recommend a period of significance
  • Confirm which properties are contributing or non-contributing

This project will help us better understand the properties in the historic district. We will also learn how the historic district has changed over time.

The historic district boundary will not change as a result of this project.

Survey process

  • The consultant team does the survey and writes the report.
  • Staff review the survey forms and report.
  • Drafts will be sent to the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office for review.
  • Staff will bring the report to the HPC for discussion in the summer of 2024. This will not be a public hearing.
