Elliot Park, just south of downtown Minneapolis, is bounded on the north by Fifth Street South, on the east by I-35W, on the south by I-94 and on the west by Fifth Avenue South.
The area was first surveyed in the 19th century, just four years after the founding of Minneapolis. The park that’s the neighborhood’s namesake was created on land donated by Dr. Joseph Elliot, a physician who owned a farm there. Many mansions were built in the neighborhood in the late 1800s and early 1900s. (Source: City of Minneapolis)
