History and Architecture of Edina, Minnesota
Like many of the suburbs surrounding central cities, Edina is often regarded as a post-World War II phenomenon, and, indeed a great deal of development that has occurred in the community dates from that period. However, Edina is more than a product of the 1950s and 60s. The City has a long and impressive history that spans over 125 years. History and Architecture of Edina,Minnesota by William W. Scott, A.I.A., and Jeffrey A. Hess is a report on buildings of historical and architectural significance in Edina. It represents the results of a historic building survey of the entire community conducted for the Heritage Preservation Board of the City of Edina in 1979. © 1981 by the City of Edina. Second printing, 1988. All rights reserved.

Cost is $6.95 plus tax ($0.51) and shipping and handling (see table below).

Edina: Chapters in the City History
Once a Civil War milling crossroads of Yankee Quarter, Irish Catholic and freed black farming families and now one of the most beautiful metropolitan communities in the nation, Edina merits a special place in national demographic and historic studies. Edina: Chapters in the City History by Deborah Morse-Kahn is a rich tapestry of historic photo imagery and essays on life in the early days and the modern times of one of Minnesota's most extraordinary cities. © 1998 by the City of Edina.

Cost is $19.95 plus tax ($1.45) and shipping and handling (see table below).
