A few articles of interest relate to the area of the Oak Lake Addition: first, an article from MinnPost discusses the history of the Oak Lake areas. Second, an article from Historyapolis showcases another map of the area circa 1930 while another article showcases images of the area. This map of the area does not include much detail to illustrate the actuality of this dense neighborhood. Platted in 1873, the area soon became home to upper middle class affluent families with large Victorian houses. By the 1930s, however, the city had condemned Oak Lake Park (north of the Oak Lake Addition) as a slum and the Oak Lake Addition deteriorated as well. An article with Minneapolis Park History details the rise and fall of both areas. This part of Minneapolis currently houses the Minneapolis Farmer's Market.
