Sorting All the Saint Anthonys — 4 Comments

  1. Hi Kei­th and all, there was grade school and a girl's high schoool in north­east Min­neapo­lis affil­i­at­ed with the old­est Catholic church in Min­neapo­lis named St. Antho­ny of Pad­ua. The church is still there, and I believe the schools were closed in 1971. I grad­u­at­ed in 1965. The build­ings were pur­chased and are now a senior com­mu­ni­ty, Catholic Elder­care. When the high school closed, DeLaSalle High School became co-ed, and it was (still is???) run by the Chris­t­ian Brothers.

  2. Hi Lin­da, yes, Wikipedia (impec­ca­ble source!) says that DeLaSalle is still run by the Chris­t­ian Brothers.

  3. Saw your post on the SAP mail­ing list (res­i­dent since only 2008) and was won­der­ing if you had checked with the MN His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety? A quick search of their online archives, for exam­ple, got this one from 1872 pret­ty quick­ly: http://​col​lec​tions​.mnhs​.org/​c​m​s​/​l​a​r​g​e​r​i​m​a​g​e​?​i​r​n​=​1​0​3​8​2​0​4​1​&​c​a​t​i​r​n​=​1​0​5​9​8​7​2​4​&​r​e​t​urn=

  4. Hi Nathan, thanks for stop­ping by. Yes, I did see that map from MN His­tor­i­cal; used a num­ber of their resources in research­ing this piece. The prob­lem is, oth­er evi­dence indi­cates that map may not show the full extent of the ter­ri­to­ry com­pris­ing old Saint Antho­ny. For exam­ple, on a sur­vey of the his­to­ry of Saint Antho­ny Vil­lage I read that the vil­lage had opt­ed to remain inde­pen­dent when Saint Antho­ny merged with Min­neapo­lis in 1872. (Can't locate that cite now that I look for it.) That implies that the bound­ary was at least a few miles to the east at that time.
