The town of Idina began as part of Richfield Township, Minnesota. In the 1850s, 17 families and most of them emigrated as a result of the great famine in Ireland entered Minnesota and registered the land in the southwestern part where Richfield Township was then. Then, farmers in England and Scotland continued to register the land near Mineha Creek. The Baird and Grimes (both designated as National Register of Historic Places), and the Country Club and District are located in the northeastern part of Idina, and are the earliest years into the town.
In 1888, the residents of the ward held a meeting and considered establishing a new village, separating it from the Richfield Township. This idea was accepted in the city and a committee was formed to supervise the transition.
The origin of the city name
After the decision to build a new village was made, the name of the village was discussed. At the Minneha Grange Hall several town people held contests, at which time Hennepin Park, Westfield and Idina were nominated. According to the minutes taken by Henry F. Brown, who was a farmer and later the owner of Ida Mill (1889),
|"||There was a long discussion about the name that this corporation would be called. At the last meeting, a motion was made to reconsider the vote by adopting the name "Westfield." In another motion, Andrew Lake proposed the name of Idina (when he moved from Edinburgh to 1869, he bought a lumber mill and renamed it Edina Mill). Before the resolution, James A. Bull, one of the five-member committee, made a motion to cancel the meeting and was supported by many. However, the chairman of the meeting declared the motion to be out of order. The confusion lasted, with the declaration that Beard, Wilson, Ryan and Bull, of the five-party committee, would resign as the committee if the law to regulate their speech had passed. During this heated time, the rally was in a uproar, but after a few minutes the disturbance calmed down. At that time, the government decided that it could not discuss any more, and a final motion to hold the meeting was made.||"|
At the next meeting, the name Idina was approved with 47 votes in favor and 42 against.
A tradition has emerged about the decision to make this new village Eidina. The Irish-dominated Cahill community and Mill Community, where the Scots dominated, fought over whether to make it an Irish name (Killarney Lakes) or a Scottish name (Idina). However, in the census conducted in 1860, there were no Scottish residents. Even in 1888, when Edina was founded, there was only one group of Scottish residents.
the Sundown Town and Race Past
The town of Idina was once recognized as a Sundown town (a white town only). In those days, there were many similar towns. There was an informal saying, "There is no Nigro or no Juu (Jew)." In fact, most whites believed racial segregation was desirable.
After World War I, Samuel Thorpe developed the elegant Edina Country Club area. The area was known to have "limited land assignment provisions" in hopes that African-American minorities in Edina would feel remote. This provision was applied to Jewish believers until the 1950s. The typical expression of the clause was:
No section shall be sold, posted, rented, or rented to any person other than a white person, the Caucasus. In other words, no white or non-Caucasian shall be private or occupied. except when the owner or lessee of the section serves as a servant, and lives there. All restrictions shall end on January 1, 1964, except Article 8 (Racial Exclusion).
There is no Sundown policy or racial segregation remaining in Edina today.
The first suburban development in Edina began in the early 1900s at the Morning Side in the northeastern part of the town. As the Morning Side developed, there was a conflict between the people there who wanted to serve the city and the people in other parts of the country who wanted to maintain the rural character of Edina. As a result of the conflict, the Morning Side separated from Idina in 1920 and became a separate village. However, in 1966, the Morning Side was again incorporated into the Idina.
Today, many of the streets in Edina are given the name of the farm owner's home in the area. For example, Grimes Avenue, Code Avenue, Greyson (Glesson) Road, Cooper Avenue, Hansen Road and Weiman Avenue.
Edina is reputed to be a wealthy city in the suburbs of Minneapolis. Citizens were thought to be wealthy (the median income was $66,019 per household in 1999, which is higher than the average $37,974 in Minneapolis and $47,111 in Minnesota), and they were once referred to as "a person who eats cake" in derision. This was a quote from Marie Antoinette who mistakenly quoted "Let them eat the cake." The word is now used in jest in regional sports rivals. For example, in the Disney movie "The Flying Duck", it was used for the character played by Adam Banks. Until the 1960s, the term "a person who eats cake" was given to Washburn Mirrors, a high school in the flourishing neighborhood of Minneapolis. In a popular culture in Minnesota, Edina puts the initials of the sentence "Needs Attention Every Day" ("Every Day I Need Attention") in a line, and again expresses the Edina people in the Montsuki style with the rich and detached people.
There are several billionaires in Edina. For example, there was Richard M. Schultz, the founder of Best By, and Carl Polardo, the capitalist.
