Acme Foundry

Location: 3161 Hiawatha Ave.

Longtime Longfellow business, Acme Foundry, molds custom metal parts for general use. In this part of the foundry they use green sand molds to make various parts such as the metal clamps that are used on all Minneapolis street signs as well as liners for all city manhole covers.

It’s a portion of the interior of Acme Foundry (where Wily Coyote gets his materials). They’ve been in business for over 100 years and in the neighborhood for decades. They are an essential, but often overlooked, part of our community.
