Milwaukee Avenue is an urban neighborhood of several streets consisting of brick 19th century railroad workers houses. In the 1970's the neighborhood was selected for "redevelopment" by demolition. A group of young architects and neighborhood residents formed a political action group and successfully gained the support of Minneapolis City officials to save the houses. The architects and other group members renovated the houses, became residents of Milwaukee Avenue and revitalized the neighborhood.
