Located in the northeastern part of Fargo, the Longfellow neighborhood was annexed to the city in stages during the 1960s and early 1970s. It is just west of the Red River and the Minnesota border. Longfellow is home to the Edgewood Golf Course and the Cardinal Muench Seminary on its northern end and Helm Park on the southeastern edge. All three sit on the banks of the Red River.
A riverfront trail runs the length of Longview and goes past some prime fishing spots. In the center of the neighborhood is North Oaks Park. Though this park is landlocked it is tree lined and offers a children’s playground and picnic area. Also within the borders is Longfellow Park, offering baseball diamonds, basketball court, and an open play area. In winter an ice skating and hockey rink are available.
Some of the older homes date back to the 1930s but most were built after the 1970s. It is a mixture of single family properties and apartment units. Schools in the area include Longfellow Elementary on 29th Avenue Northwest, McKinley Elementary on 8th Street North, a bit farther to the west, and Hope Preschool on Broadway North, also to the west. The University of North Dakota Medical School and associated hospital are on the southern edge of Longfellow. Nearby churches include Edgewood United Methodist on Elm Street North and St Stephen’s Episcopal on 21st Avenue North one block west of the medical school.
