The Minnetonka Historical Society Speaker Series

In 2020 we started an exciting new series of presentations at the Senior Center at Minnetonka City Hall covering various topics about Minnetonka History. In January we started with two presentations by our past President Bill Jepson. One about the History of 19th Century Milling in Minnetonka and the other about Minnetonka through the last 60 years when they became a Village and a City. Then in 2021 he presented an update of our History of Glen Lake and also the story of Dana Frear's unpublished manuscript about the History of Minnetonka that will hopefully become a book next year!
