Nokomis East's Location in Minneapolis

Nokomis East is a group of neighborhoods in the southeastern corner of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It consists of four neighborhoods: Keewaydin, Minnehaha, Morris Park and Wenonah. Nokomis East contains two schools, the Nokomis Community Library, and a post office. On its western edge is Lake Nokomis, for which it is named.[1] Two regional parks (Minnehaha and Lake Nokomis), and three neighborhood parks, (Keewaydin, Bossen Field and Morris Park) provide recreation and educational programming for all age groups. Seven churches serve residents of various denominations. Nokomis East is served by the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association (NENA). The main transportation corridors are the neighborhood boundaries: Cedar Avenue, 34th and 28th Avenues, 50th and 54th Streets, Hwy 55 (Hiawatha Avenue), and Crosstown highway 62.


Until 1880, an American Indian Village was located between Lake Nokomis and Lake Hiawatha, in the vicinity of the current Nokomis Community Center. Rail transit and a depot were established near the neighborhood as early as 1865.[1]
