It extends from Washington Street NE on the east to the Mississippi River on the west, and from Broadway Street NE on the south to 18 th and 17 th avenues NE on the north.
It is named for Civil War General Philip Sheridan. The neighborhood elementary and junior high schools and the local park are all named after General Sheridan too. A large portion of the neighborhood was built for industrial use of the Mississippi River, but there is potential for new housing in these industrial areas. The Sheridan neighborhood also has a sizable amount of small apartment buildings. (Source: City of Minneapolis Neighborhood Profiles)
