Homewood Studios

2400 Plymouth Avenue North
Minneapolis, MN 55411


History and Background:

The vision for Homewood Studios has its roots in the late sixties and early seventies, in a North Minneapolis neighborhood called Homewood. At that time several young families, all committed to values of diversity, social justice and community activism, began buying homes here. The neighborhood had been depressed, many of the homes were dilapidated or abandoned, but they were built in the early part of this century and were big, well-made, elegantly designed structures, and they were relatively inexpensive because of the reputation of the area. These teachers, attorneys, architects and artists, professional people and their families, were not particularly interested in the American Dream of the suburbs an earlier generation had pursued but rather were inclined to create a vital and nurturing community in an urban landscape.
