Cake Walk: Edina's Journey from Settlement to Suburb
"Cake Walk" explores the city’s growth from flour millers to “cake eaters,” how one of the first planned suburban neighborhoods in the United States helped transition an agricultural settlement to a prominent community. We’ll discuss the racial and economic impact of the Country Club neighborhood, the city’s reputation as Cake Eaters, and African American berry farmer BC Yancey. Led by Edina residents and Minnesota Historical Society tour guides Dan Rooney and Fred Keller.
This tour, a partnership of Edina Historical Society and Hennepin History Museum, begins at Utley Park, near the picnic pavilion, 4521 W 50th St, Edina. 90 minutes in length, a total of 2.5 miles of walking on uneven surfaces. Tours are Saturdays and Thursdays in July, August, and September. Tickets range from $12-$14.
