Maple Grove is a booming third tier community with an eclectic mix of residential real estate opportunities, and is host to a multitude of thriving businesses, entertainment facilities, retailers, restaurants, recreation, and opportunities.

The only people who lived in the area were the Winnebago Indians until 1851, when the area was settled by Louis Grvais. Soon farms, churches, and newly constructed homes dotted the landscape. Schoolhouses started to replace the vacant homes that were first used for schools. The economy centered around potatoes, creameries, and lumber mills. By 1915, the Great Northern train depot was in full swing, and a cheese factory was constructed.

After World War Two, the population of Maple Grove MN started to boom. The 1880 population was only 1155. By 2000, the population exceeded 54000.

Today, Maple Grove is an economic powerhouse, and is one of the fastest growing communities in the area. Suprisingly, city services are keeping pace with residential and commercial growth. Land use plans have been implemented to ensure that growth will continue without compromising the natural beauty of the area. Be sure to visit Arbor Lakes area the next time you are shopping.
