Minneapolis is a community located along US 19-E in Avery County, North Carolina. It shares its name with two other cities nationwide: another small town in Kansas, and the much more famous city of Minneapolis, Minnesota, that state's largest city and twin city of its capital.

History

As early as 1904, the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad went through the community of Minneapolis, but bypassed it as it traveled between Cranberry and Montezuma. In 1910 a depot was built, mainly to service a sawmill and asbestos factory; in 1937, the depot was abandoned, but flag stops still continued till 1940. After the rails were removed, the railway bed became the foundation for Old Toe River Road.
