    Minneapolis was originally inhabited by the Dakota Sioux. This may have been due in part to the many lakes, wetlands and waterfalls found in the area. Minneapolis is said to have one of the country’s best park systems, with walking and biking trails that follow the old railroad lines. Minneapolis grew from the lumber which was harvested from the surrounding forests. Hydro power was used to mill flour for decades. General Mills and Pillsbury can trace their roots to this area. The arts are a big part of Minneapolis culture. MIA or the Minneapolis Institute of Art, began around 1915 and has over 100,000 pieces in its collection. Theater performances have been held in Minneapolis since after the Civil War, in dozens of theater companies. While Minneapolis has national sports teams, they also are home to the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships and enjoy ice fishing, ice skating and cross-country skiing. Whether for sports, history or art, Minneapolis has something for everyone. 

    Minneapolis is considered a major financial center. Many major corporate headquarters call Minneapolis home, including Target and UnitedHealth. Agriculture started the modern growth of Minneapolis and continues to help it today. Corn, beets, and green peas are some of what is produced in Minneapolis today. Manufacturing, medical and retail also play a part in Minneapolis’s economy. The largest shopping mall in the country, the Mall of America, is in a suburb of Minneapolis. Manufacturing in Minneapolis includes computers. The game “Oregon Trail” was developed by the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium. Diverse business sectors in Minneapolis help to make it a well-rounded city.
