History & 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.
