History of Hopkins Minnesota

The first people settled in Hopkins in 1852 but the beginnings of the town did not start until 1887 with the establishment of the Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company, which served to employ most of the people in the town. By 1893, 41 residents submitted a petition to the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners that they are allowed to incorporate as the village of West Minneapolis. At the time, the population of the settlement comprised of 1,105 people. In 1928, the name was changed to Hopkins in honor of Harley H. Hopkins, one of the founders and the settlement’s first postmaster. The village adopted its City charter on December 2, 1947 to officially become the City of Hopkins.
