Discover Edina, Minnesota
Edina, Minnesota is an inner ring suburb located just to the southwest of Minneapolis in Hennepin County. Originally a part of Richfield, it split from the town back in 1888 and has been an independent town ever since. Like the other southern suburbs, Edina was a quiet farming community until after World War II when the population rapidly grew. In 1950, there were fewer than 10,000 residents, and by 1960, over 30,000 people were living in the town. Since then, the population continues to steadily grow as more businesses move to the area, as well as close proximity to Interstate 464, State Highway 100, and State Highway 62 make commuting to Bloomington and Minneapolis quick and easy.
