On This Date in Minnesota History: December 16

December 16, 1886 – “The Village of Golden Valley was incorporated [on this date]. During its early years, Golden Valley was an agricultural community of only a few hundred residents, full of farms, mills, and dairies. Residential development began after the Electric Luce Line Railroad was cut through the village in 1912.”
