Golden Valley homes for sale offer an abundance of education options, stunning views
and some of the world’s most influential businesses. Named for both its fields of wheat and blooming
daffodils, Golden Valley is a beautiful and peaceful suburb.
The Chippewa and Sioux were some of the area’s first inhabitants, with encampments on nearby Medicine Lake. In the 19th century, Golden Valley was primarily a farming community with one small conflict: where did the city get its name? William Varner, one of the area’s first settlers, came upon a ‘hill so high that he thought it was a mountain’ and climbed to the summit, and when he looked down at the valley filled with daffodils he said ‘this is my valley, my golden valley’. In the 1900s, an older resident swore that it was the ‘wheat, acres of it glimmering in a summer sun’ that gave the city its name. Regardless, it is clear that this town has a beautiful, golden scenery for its lucky residents.
