History of Wayzata MN
In 1852, two pioneer families settled on the present area of Wayzata, one of them being the family of Oscar E. Garrison. Garrison constructed a cabin at what is now the intersection of Lake Street and Broadway Avenue in downtown Wayzata. In 1854 he sketched a survey of the area and filed a claim for most of present-day Wayzata proper. Wayzata was officially recognized later that year. By 1855 an influx of settlers came to the area and established a sawmill, hotel and blacksmith shop. In 1881, Wayzata separated from the Minnetonka Township to become a separate entity. During the 1950s, Wayzata increased in size mainly when it annexed land from Minnetonka, Plymouth and Orono.
