The first recorded residents of Eagan were the Native Americans of Black Dog village. In the 19th century, the community became an agricultural powerhouse, with Irish-Americans growing so many onions that Eagan became known as the ‘Onion Capital of the United States’ for the next 50 years. The city itself was named for Patrick Eagan, an immigrant from Tipperary, Ireland who was the 1st chairman of the town board of supervisors. Those interested in knowing more about town history can visit the Town Hall, which has been restored to its original 1914 appearance!
