    • About the City
      Edina is a first-ring suburban city in Hennepin County, State of Minnesota. Most of the original residents of Edina were Scottish and Irish immigrants and some have remained to see their city grow into a community that offers one of the best living conditions for its residents.
      With 39 parks, high quality medical and educational facilities and regional shopping areas, Edina has indeed become a city to watch out for. 
    • History
      Edina used to be part of the City of Richfield in Minnesota in the 1850s after the original 17 family settlers migrated to the Richfield Village due to Ireland’s potato famine. The English and Scottish farmers followed and established a community along the Minnehaha Creek.
      Edina was born after the residents decided to separate from Richfield Village in 1888 and establish a new village. Among the names that were floated around include Westfield and Hennepin Park but it was Edina which was chosen by the villagers. 
    • Economy
      Money is circulating in Edina and if you are planning on corporate relocation or employee relocation or just plain vacation then you would not be disappointed with Edina’s commercial establishments. This is shopper’s destination and if you happen to pass by here do not miss Southdale Center, a fully-enclosed. Climate-controlled shopping mall considered a first in the United States.
      Alcoholic drinks are controlled in Edina and these items are sold only in municipal liquor stores in Southdale, Vermon & InterlachenBlvd and 50th & France. Nowhere else can you find this commodity in Edina.
    • Real Estate

      Corporate relocation is now becoming a trend in Edina. If you belong to the high-income bracket employees and your company offers you a relocation package in Edina which includes a condominium, duplex or a new home then make sure you know about the real state of real estate in Edina by consulting a real estate agent.
