St. Anthony East is located in northeast Minneapolis. The neighborhood extends from Broadway Street NE on the northern border to Central Avenue NE on the east and southeast, Second Avenue NE on the south, and then Fifth and Washington streets NE on the west. The neighborhood is part of the former village of St. Anthony, established in 1849 on the east bank of the Mississippi River. St. Anthony Falls –the neighborhood’s namesake– was seen in 1680 by Father Louis Hennepin, a Jesuit who is credited with being the first European to explore the area that is now Minneapolis. He named the falls after his patron saint, St. Anthony of Padua.
St. Anthony East is characterized by its number of churches, reminders of a not-so- distant past when people from different European countries moved into the area. These immigrants settled in neighborhoods around their churches, which held them together as social and religious groups.
