When residents of Minnesota think of an excellent suburb, their minds immediately go to Edina. The City of Edina has an immense respect for its history, incredible schools and an abundance of outdoor entertainment options, and homes for sale in Edina are an all-access ticket to this great town!
Merely a small farming and milling community in the 1860s, Edina had humble beginnings. The town has grown steadily since, slowly becoming the hub for business and education that we know today. The town’s name comes with the popular myth that the area’s Irish and Scottish residents quarreled over the Irish name Killarney Lakes and the Scottish moniker Edina, with Edina of course emerging victorious. While this lore has been disproven, it is still an amusing story for residents, who already thoroughly enjoy honoring their heritage. Edina real estate is in a town with historical sites sprinkled throughout, such as Baird House, Browndale Bridge, the Edina Mills Site and Grand Hall.
