The City of Eden Prairie is the perfect size city in the Twin Cities metro. Homes for sale in Eden Prairie are part of a town that truly has it all.
Eden Prairie was originally Dakota territory, but was a point of serious conflict between the Ojibwa and Dakota tribes. In the mid-19th century, the area was opened to settlers by a treaty allowing pioneers to move to land west of the Mississippi. Many of the early farm houses that were built at the time are still standing today, and can be found on the National Register of Historic Places. The town is named Eden Prairie because a citizen was admiring the rolling prairie and compared it to the biblical garden of Eden.
