MI-BOX Moving Guide to Chaska, Minnesota
Moving to Chaska, Minnesota
Located just 26 miles outside the city of Minneapolis, this southwestern suburb in the heart of Carver County has so much to offer for people of all ages. For those moving to Chaska, there are endless activities to try and sights to see. From the city’s beautiful golf courses to the seasonal haunted attractions, the excitement is never at a lull.
The history of Chaska, Minnesota roots itself in Native American and European-American culture which is still important to the city today. The first people to inhabit the land presently known as Chaska were Native Americans of the Woodlawn culture. These Native Americans, with the nickname Mound Builders, first settled on the land in 1200 B.C. The land was later taken over by a different group of Native Americans known as the Dakota tribe from 1750 to 1851. The name Chaska, meaning “firstborn son,” originates from the Dakota tribe’s native language.
In 1851, Thomas Andrew Holmes was drawn to a 20-acre clearing alongside the Minnesota River, which he made into the township of Chaska. By 1871, the township became a village, and then in 1891, the village became a city. The majority of Chaska’s early settlers were of German descent, and they helped develop the city by opening shops, schools, and churches.
For the city’s first century, agriculture was the most popular industry. Companies such as the Chaska Canning Company, American Crystal Sugar Company, and the Chaska Flour Mill were all important economic stimulants for the city and reflected its strong agricultural focus. The brick-making industry in Chaska also began to thrive in the late 1850s due to the need to build up the city and accommodate a growing population. These bricks were in high demand across the country and can still be found in landmarks around the state including the State Capitol, Fort Snelling, and the Stillwater State Prison.
While most of the city has developed to suit modern-day architecture, historical landmarks from Chaska’s early beginning can still be located in and around the city.
