Memorial Stadium, also known as the “Brick House,” was the home of the Minnesota Golden Gophers from 1924 until 1981. On November 15, 1924, in a game dedicating the new Memorial Stadium, the Gophers knocked Illinois star tailback Red Grange out of the game en route to a 20-7 upset victory.
Stadium Village, near the East Bank campus of the University of Minnesota, is located at the heart of an economically diverse and growing metropolitan area.
The heart of the neighborhood is the intersection of Oak Street Southeast and Washington Avenue Southeast. The Stadium Village name comes from the area’s close association with the University of Minnesota.
College football fans know the area as home to the old Memorial Stadium, which was torn down in 1992. Today the area is the home to TCF Bank Stadium, which opened in 2009. Other popular sports venues in the area include Williams Arena (basketball) and Mariucci Arena (hockey).
Stadium Village is a bustling, robust community year-round. Its population ebbs and flows from a few thousand University of Minnesota students, employees and visitors on an average day to tens of thousands of people on days of major sporting events.
A vibrant array of restaurants, bars and shops in Stadium Village, many of which have been around for decades, serve the needs of local residents and visitors. Because of the high visibility of the Stadium Village area as a sports locale, many in the community consider it to be the heart of the University of Minnesota campus.
