This is a private home. I don't know anything about tours, but it's easy to find, just west of Lake of the Isles, and it's on a corner lot. Nice old house. Keep going west towards Cedar Lake for a nice walk or bicycle tour.

If you were a fan of the show it is worth driving by if you have the time and nothing else planned. It is a nice house and was for sale when we were there. Very nice neighborhood and a pretty little lake a few blocks away.

This is a beautiful home on the corner of 21st and Kenwood Parkway. It looks nothing like it it did in the opening of the MTM show. I often drive visitors by the home, but most are skeptical that it is the actual home that was filmed in the TV show. The home is privately owned and tours are not... More

It's always a pleasure to see this house on the corner of 21st and Penn. It's the house where Mary Richards supposedly lived for the first five years of her time in Minneapolis. Rhoda Morgenstern lived in the garrett above her, and Phyllis Lindstrom lived downstairs. It's best to go at night, because frequently the space where Mary lived is... More

If you appreciate pop culture, you will love this stop. Beautiful neighborhood, If you loved Mary Tyler Moore, you will love seeing her first apartment.

My cousin drove my mother and I there on our first trip to the city. Fun to see all the walkers around Lake of the Isles on the way there ans remember Mary Richards walking around it herself in the opening. Local drivers were very considerate about us jumping out for a picture!

The exterior in typically Kenwood. The show quit using the shot when the owners put up a stop the war sign during Vietnam. It's not a monument to anything. The statuje of Mary downtown looks dated now.

This house is located on a very busy street. It looks just like on the television series. Nice to see but really it is just another house.
