Eden Prairie (Images of America)
Nestled on the banks of the Minnesota River, the city of Eden Prairie possesses a vibrant history and a unique heritage. This book showcases over 200 historic photographs, many of which are published for the first time, to document Eden Prairie's rural roots and urban progress, from the 1850s, when immigrants began to settle in the region, through the present day. Author Marie Berger Wittenberg takes readers on a visual tour of Eden Prairie's founding families, its notable historic homes and businesses, and the churches, schools, landmarks, and organizations that have shaped the community as it is known today.
Marie Berger Wittenberg is the president of the Eden Prairie Historical Society and the curator of its historical museum. She is the author of the Prairie Pioneers local history column in the Eden Prairie News, and is also an interpretive guide at Murphy's Corners in Shakopee.
