"A village away from the hustle and bustle"

You can find the great Minneapolis neighborhood of Wenonah located to the very south of the region, sharing a border with the suburb of Richfield. Wenonah is also part of the Nokomis Community and shares a small portion of its border with Lake Nokomis. Because it is so close to Richfield, some families send their children to Richfield schools, although there are other schools in the area.
The community originally developed because the streetcar routes came through that portion of Minneapolis. Many of the homes in Wenonah reflect this early heritage and date back to the early to middle 1900s. Home prices are fairly typical for Minneapolis neighborhoods on the outskirts of the region. Most of them sell for below $200,000, with many closer to $100,000.
Wenonah is much like a small village, having its own stores and places to eat nearby. Many residents who feel they need to find a larger retail or business district in which to shop or work actually go into nearby Richfield instead of commuting into the busier Minneapolis districts of Downtown and Uptown. The bus line makes it easy to commute in either direction, and when you travel by car Highway 62 can take you east or west and bring you to either 35E or 35W.
  • it has a smalltown feel
  • takes longer to commute from here
