Welcome to Windom
Windom neighborhood and elementary school are named after William Windom. William Windom served in the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate for Minnesota (1850s), and twice took on the role of United States Secretary of the Treasury.
Part of the Southwest area, the neighborhood itself is tucked in between Kenny and Crosstown Highway, featuring many businesses, recreation, and areas to shop. Windom Community Council has a goal to make their neighborhood attractive and supportive whilst recognizing their cultural diversity and keeping the area safe and clean. Supporting this goal are locally owned businesses, neighborhood events, and even a community garden where you can participate in growing vegetables and flowers.
The industrial patch of Windom makes up roughly 15% of the land, and most of the houses are sturdy homes with two or three bedrooms, constructed mainly before the 1940s. Located closely to the city and other surrounding suburbs, Windom is a good area to stay in touch with other neighborhoods.
