Quasquicentennial: It's a big word for a big year
In 2013, Edina will celebrate its 125th year of independence. On Dec. 12, 1888, the western half of Richfield Township formed the independent Village of Edina.
Edina has made history many times since then, with 125 years of firsts, lasts, bests and mosts.
Spotlight those history-making moments with an entry in the July 4th parade. Or depict Edina's changing landscape for the EdinaScapes art show.
Check out the Quasquicentennial calendar (left) for other ways to celebrate. See more details on our 125th web page.
