History of Edina Minnesota

The settlement of Edina started as a part of the Richfield Township. By the time the 1870s came about there were seventeen families living in the fledgling town, most were Irish immigrants seeking a better life. Other settlers came from Germany and New England. The small community held a meeting in 1888 to discuss the founding of a new village to separate them from the Richfield Township. There was a long debate regarding what new name the town would be called but they eventually settled for Edina.
