Eden Prairie, Minnesota (Hennepin County) roots? Ongoing oral history project

Eden Prairie, Minnesota is a suburb of Minneapolis. It was once a rural area but has grown into a place with a large population and the stores and activities to match. I lived there for a couple years and my ex-husband worked there for many years. There isn’t an old main street with quaint stores, but there is a historical society that is trying to preserve memories. Thus, its oral history project.

“The Historical Society’s Oral History Project, entitled “Eden Prairie Remembers Its Mid-Century Transformation,” set out to “explore the steps and driving forces of Eden Prairie’s journey from a rural to suburban community by interviewing those who lived the history.”
