Payne-Phalen Then And Now
Historically, Payne-Phalen has been the home to new immigrants. When the Irish, Germans, Swedes, and Italians came to Minnesota, many of them made the East Side their home. In fact, Swede Hollow was a valley so named because of the Swedish immigrants who settled there. During the industrial age, this neighborhood became a locus for several important industrial companies such as Hamm's brewery, Whirlpool, 3M, and Seeger Refrigerator Company. The local economy was bolstered by the presence of such companies as they employed thousands of residents. However, they all closed their doors in Payne-Phalen in the 1970s,  symbolizing the ups and downs that this neighborhood has experienced since it was established. Today, due to much renovation and overhaul, the Payne-Phalen has now added gastropubs, arts, and organic farming to the mix, and they have become a much stronger community as a result. They are still welcoming to immigrants, however, and they never forget their roots as they continue to show off their East Side pride. (rev. 1/30/21)
