“Serving today, Shaping Tomorrow”



Maple Grove

Blending the old with the new

Maple Grove is a growing community with over 61,000 residents.  Conveniently located within twenty minutes of downtown Minneapolis, Maple Grove offers its residents all the amenities of having downtown nearby, but all the luxuries of being removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city.  

Maple Grove was originally inhabited by the Winnebago until 1851 when Louis Gervais arrived and settled.  In 1855, the city was growing and included a church, town hall, and many residents.  The city was named after the abundant maple trees and large amount of maple syrup that came from the area.  

As development moved westwards from Minneapolis and the completion of  Interstate 95, 695, and 494, Maple Grove has grown at an impressive pace since the 1970’s.  It is one of the most populated cities in the state and is one of the fastest growing cities in the state.  Money Magazine named Maple Grove as the second best place to live in 2014.
