St. Louis Park’s history begins with the founding of a small village called Elmwood in the 1860s. The village was incorporated after citizens petitioned the state in 1886, and eventually became St. Louis Park, which was officially incorporated as a city in 1954. The name was taken from the local Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway, and ‘park’ was added to avoid confusion with St. Louis, Missouri. St. Louis Park enjoyed steady growth with two distinct spikes in population, one during the depression and the other right after WWII. These booms included the construction of Minnesota’s 1st shopping center and the founding of what would become HealthPartners. Today, St. Louis Park real estate features an excellent mix of new and traditional housing, thanks to its unique long-term development.
