MI-BOX Moving Guide to Minnetonka, Minnesota
Moving to Minnetonka, Minnesota
There are many reasons why moving to Minnetonka, Minnesota is worth it. The city has a stable economy with its job market on the rise, excellent schools, low crime rates, safe neighborhoods, and entertainment for the whole family. Minnetonka also fosters a welcoming and culturally diverse environment suitable for raising children. Its proximity to the city of Minneapolis makes it convenient to enjoy the big city life. The town lies just 15 miles outside of Minneapolis in Hennepin County. Minnetonka offers multiple transportation services that readily bring residents to and from Minneapolis, making it easy to spend the day downtown. Whatever your motive is for moving to Minnetonka, consider utilizing moving services or portable storage containers to help make the transition hassle-free.
Long before the first settlers came to the land presently known as Minnetonka, Native American tribes occupied the area. Lake Minnetonka provided exceptional fishing, and the dense woods and prairies offered good hunting. In 1851, an agreement among the Native Americans and European settlers was signed that allowed for the settlement west of Fort Snelling. One year later, in 1852, the first settlement was established where the present-day Minnetonka Mills stands. Early settlers came primarily from New England, the British Isles, the Czech Republic, and northern Europe.
As the population continued to increase, the township of Minnetonka decided it was time to be incorporated as a village in 1956. Another contributing factor to this decision was the annexation of four newly developed residential areas within Minnetonka. This development reduced the area of Minnetonka from 36 to 28 square miles. Since Minnetonka was only a township at the time, it could not stop the land from being annexed. However, had it been a village, Minnetonka could’ve prevented the annexation. To preserve their property in the future, the township decided to transition to a village.
In the 1960s, the village started to see significant civic changes. Highways and transportation services began to improve, which allowed easier access for new residents, thus further increasing the population. Fire and police stations were established as well as significant commercial developments. By 1968, the village of Minnetonka officially became a city. More changes were seen throughout the 1970s with septic tanks being replaced with a town sewer system and water lines. Today, the city is home to many major corporate headquarters as well as small local businesses.
