Elliot Park is one of the oldest neighborhood communities in Minneapolis. It began in the 1850’s as one of the settlements that emerged around the Falls of St. Anthony on the Mississippi River. Its proximity to the industries that were built up around the Falls made it popular for Swedish immigrants who were drawn to this area. Sections of Elliot Park along 8th Street were platted for the building of houses, stores, and churches as early as 1856, only four years after the founding of Minneapolis.
