The Historic Hawthorne Neighborhood is part of Fargo’s original townsite. It contains a vibrant mix of housing types that radiate from the downtown commercial area on Main Avenue and 8th Street and around Island Park. The Red River makes up the eastern border, which offers access to both the riverside trails and parks. Historic 8th Street, known for its noteworthy street lighting, commerce, homes, and trees, runs north and south through the center of the neighborhood and makes up the core of the National Register Southside Historic District. The neighborhood is named after Hawthorne Elementary School, located on 6th Street and 8th Avenue South.
