The city of Minnetonka has a long history dating back to the mid 1800’s when it was a popular settlement due to its location along the Minnehaha Creek. Early settlers primarily came from New England and other Eastern states and brought with them the techniques to grow raspberries which later set up the success of Minnetonka’s neighboring city, Hopkins.
