The Museum in the Streets: Minneapolis, Minnesota

—27th and Lake: Industry and Transportation Infrastructure —

Since the 1880s, 27th Avenue and Lake Street has been a center of commercial activity. The area was linked to downtown Minneapolis in 1890 when the electric streetcar was extended down Minnehaha Avenue en route to Minnehaha Park. Its future as a bustling retail node was secured when, in 1909, the International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) Flour City Lodge #118 built an impressive stone, steel, and brick building at the intersection. In addition to accommodating the needs of the IOOF, the building was expected to improve the neighborhood because of its size and because it represented the faith the organization had in Lake Street. By the 1920s, the area was a complete shopping district with banks, department stores, professional offices, restaurants, ballrooms, and theaters, all within just blocks of the IOOF building.

Además de acomodar las necesidades del IOO, se supornía que el edificio mejorara

el barrio por su tamaño y porque representaba la fe de la organización en Lake Street. En los 1920, el área era una zona de compras completa, con bancos, tiendas grandes, oficinas, restaurantes, galones de baile, y teatros, todo a unas cuadras del edificio IOOF.
