LAKE HISTORY REIMAGINED
Mound is a 3.18 square mile quaint town located on Lake Minnetonka just 20 miles west of Minneapolis. The city has a lot to offer its citizens with an award winning school district, scenic beauty, and the city’s commitment to recapturing the charm of the early lake history in the design of the downtown commercial and residential construction.
The Village of Mound was incorporated in 1912. The city is named for the Indian Mounds that were built as early as 300 BC to 100 AD.
Bloomberg Businessweek named Mound as “Minnesota’s Best Place to Raise Your Kids.”
One of the most famous businesses to come out of Mound is Tonka Toys. Mound was the headquarters and warehouse for more than 36 years when it relocated to Chicago after Tonka Toys acquired Mell Manufacturing Company.
the Mound Docks and Commons Program is the largest municipally owned dock program in the state with 311 dock sites, 19 city installed multiple docks with 96 slips, 5 personal watercraft sites, and 1 City owned multiple dock with 37 slips available for annual rental. The land was platted by the developers back in 1906-1911 and it was their goal that all Mound residents could enjoy Lake Minnetonka and not just those who had a lakefront property. It is a special feature that greatly enhances life that only the city of Mound can offer at such a large level.
Mound offers over 17 miles of shoreline which is one of the larger cities on the lake. In addition to an abundance of lake homes, the highly rated Westonka school district, easy commute to downtown Minneapolis, and the small town environment makes Mound a highly desirable place to live.
