Frederick and Edythe Haynes House, 5033 43rd Avenue S.
This is a follow up to the Minnehaha Neighborhood tour.  While researching after the tour, I found a few interesting facts about another Minnehaha resident, Dr. Frederick Haynes.   Frederick and Edythe were married on June 20, 1900. The above house was built in 1911.  The Haynes’ moved from the Andrew J. Foster house (5026 44th Ave. S.) with Edythe’s mother, Ada Mills to this new house in 1911.
Edythe was the granddaughter of Andrew J. Foster, who was spotlighted in an earlier post. Her husband, Dr. Frederick Haynes was assistant Minneapolis Health Commissioner in 1910.  He also was involved in politics, he was the Republican candidate for Ward 12 at least once.  He led the successful opposition against the installation of a roller coaster opposite the entrance to Minnehaha Park in 1914. In 1904 as health inspector, Haynes advocated a ban on kissing in the interest of stopping the spread of disease.  The 1904 Minneapolis Tribune article also mentioned although he was married, he had not had been entwined in “connubial bonds” in three years. 
Frederick and Edythe most probably were once again entwined in “connubial bonds” by 1907: son Gene Haynes was born July 24, 1908.  His brother Ned Byron Haynes was born October 17, 1917. Edythe died on January 10, 1943.  Frederick died on September 16, 1959 and was survived by his two sons and second wife, Ruth B. Haynes.  She was thirty years his junior and lived until March 25, 1982. High-res

Minnehaha Tour - Minneapolis 81
(via Minnehaha Neighborhood Tour | Minneapolis 81)
Janelle Nivens is endeavoring to tour all 81 neighborhoods of Minneapolis and is looking for tour guides.  I was lucky enough to be the guide with my wife Kelly for Minnehaha neighborhood.  Our cat Mabel even made a cameo. I found quite a few historical resources in Special Collections to prepare for the tour.  Minnehaha neighborhood once was the gateway to Minnehaha Park and used to be quite the rowdy place - roller rinks and dance halls and close dancing!  It was a street car suburb that grew into the post World War II era.  Now it has a great mix of new and long term residents and still has a small town feel with a mini commercial district on 34th Avenue between Minnehaha Parkway and Highway 62.   The newly renovated Nokomis Library is also a great neighborhood amenity.
Recently a restaurant on the commercial strip (but technically in Wenonah neighborhood), Las Teresitas was just chosen as the place with the best taco according to City Pages.  Tuesdays are dollar taco day, by the way. High-res
