"History, Beauty and Water"

Those who live in Cooper have the luxury of being just steps away from the Mississippi River and just being downriver from downtown Minneapolis. The neighborhood was named after the historically acclaimed author, James Fenimore Cooper, and the streets maintain a historic appeal with its many homes that predate World War II. Those wishing to live in Cooper would be most comfortable with a relatively high income since a great number houses are priced just under or just over $200,000 and rent is seldom below $750 per month.

The majority of historic homes are modest in size, with one or two bedrooms. E. Lake St. is where the majority of businesses are located and it later turns into Marshall Ave. after crossing the river. There are no public schools in the Cooper community, but there is a private education option with Minnehaha Academy, which is set on the river banks. The local population, which consists of various age groups, with very few college students, enjoy having access to numerous riverside parks and easy access to downtown via W. River Parkway.
