Long-term Vision, Small-town Pride


If you’re a new visitor – explore this site! We give you a snapshot of local restaurants, progressive politics, innovative sustainability, real estate and development.

For returning visitors: we now have the richest Southwest performing arts calendars (theater, band, choir, dance), and we try to keep the Linden Hills Observer blog and special events calendar (also see sidebar at right) both newsy and concise.

The Personality of Linden Hills

LindenHillsmapThere is perhaps no other Minneapolis neighborhood as admired and well-known as Linden Hills… with our charming and mostly modest-sized “craftsman” homes, our close proximity to Lakes Calhoun and Harriet, our easily accessible and walkable commercial districts, and a plethora of parks and shade trees from which we derive our name, this is a place where people love to live.

Bike paths connect our tree-lined blocks to the lakes and The Village, where you’ll find superb restaurants, a flower shop, ice cream, a bakery, a children’s bookstore and a hardware store — with service as personal as you’d ever imagine. (Read this blog to learn more about the entrepreneurs who help create this unique feel.)

We tend toward progressive action when it comes to the environment and social justice. Our Linden Hills farmer’s market is innovative in bridging our connection with organic farmers. (Read this blog entry.)

Explore and enjoy this website. There’s probably more here than you know! And if there’s anything else you’d like to see or know about our neighborhood, contact Larry @ LarryLaVercombe.com.
