The Sheridan neighborhood is located in northeast Minneapolis. 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 18th and 17th 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.

Note: I was recently in DC and took a photo of the statue commemorating General Philip Sheridan.
Heidi Andermack has had a connection and dedication to Northeast Minneapolis since moving to the City of Lakes in 1993. She lived in Northeast neighborhoods until 2009 and now has a business based in Sheridan. She is co-owner of Chowgirls Killer Catering which has enjoyed a permanent home in the Sheridan neighborhood since 2006 at 1222 Second Street NE. During our walk, I learned that Heidi was instrumental in the formation of Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) and in 2002 coordinated the creation of the Arts Action Plan for Northeast Minneapolis. Heidi is married to local typographer, Chank Diesel (Chank Co) and they are parents to Max.
