Plymouth, Minnesota Area Information and Real Estate Resources

Plymouth, Minnesota is located in Hennepin County and, with around 80,000 residents, is one of the largest suburbs in the Twin Cities metro area. Just 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis, Plymouth offers a great location and a thriving community.

This community has a lengthy history that dates back to the 1400s, when the Dakota inhabited the area. The area was originally known as Medicine Lake, which is derived from the Native American word “Mdewakan,” which means “Lake of the Spirit.”The Dakota named it as such after a warrior overturned his canoe in the lake and his body was never found.

Europeans began arriving in the area in the 1850s. By 1955, the community had been incorporated as a village. Later, Hennepin County Commissioners decided to rename the 35.33-square-mile community Plymouth.
