History

Bohemian Flats was formerly a residential area. About the time city was incorporated (1867), immigrants seeking employment in Minneapolis or at the St. Anthony mills began settling there.

The Washington Avenue Bridge was constructed over the area in 1884, linking central Minneapolis with the campus of the University of Minnesota, on the east bank of the river. By 1900, the 100 homes, a few stores, and a church created what many described as an Old World-style village below the University.
