Minneapolis Executive Search City Snapshot:


Hey, welcome to Minneapolis, Minnesota so… Some people know Minneapolis as “Mill City,” “City of Lakes,” and one half of “Twin Cities” (St. Paul being the other half). Minneapolis is the center of a large metropolitan region in eastern Minnesota by the Mississippi River. It is also the largest city in Minnesota. Minneapolis’ name comes from “mni” a Dakota Sioux word for water, and “polis” the Greek word for city. True to its name, Minneapolis is abundant with water. The city is home to over 20 lakes and wetlands, the Mississippi River, and several creeks and waterfalls. The NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers were originally the Minneapolis Lakers, named after Minneapolis’ profusion of lakes. At one time Minneapolis was the flour milling capital of the world. Over the years the city has produced many famous individuals, including: Sinclair Lewis, Josh Hartnett, Joel and Ethan Coen, Charles M. Schulz, Bob Dylan, Prince, John S. Pillsbury, Jesse Ventura, Hubert Humphrey, and Walter Mondale. Today Minneapolis is the primary business center between Chicago and Seattle.

Until the French arrived in 1680, Minneapolis’ sole residents were Native Americans of the Dakota Sioux tribe. French fur traders travelled throughout the Great Lakes region in the 1700s. It wasn’t until the U.S. army built Fort Snelling in 1819 that white people started settling in present day Minneapolis. Throughout the early 1800s the US government pressed the Dakota Sioux to sell their land to allow Americans to settle in the area. Between 1837 and 1851, 121 Sioux leaders ceded the Minneapolis area to the US. By 1856 Minneapolis’ population grew large enough to become a town and in 1867 it was incorporated as a Minnesota city.

Minneapolis grew around Saint Anthony Falls, the highest waterfall on the Mississippi River. Saint Anthony provided plenty of hydropower for millers in the area. After railroad service reached the city, Minneapolis became a milling capital for flour, grain, wool, cotton, paper, and sashes. Midwest and Great Plains farmers transported grain to Pillsbury, General Mills, and several other large Minneapolis flour mills. In 1905 Minneapolis produced 10% of the nation’s flour and grist.

Throughout the 20th century, Minneapolis was a leading city in equality and anti-discrimination movements. In 1886 Minneapolis’ Martha Ripley founded Maternity Hospital for women. The city passed several workers’ rights laws after the Teamsters Strike of 1934. In 1950 Minneapolis was 98.4% white. Nevertheless its residents actively supported fair employment practices for minorities and the African American civil rights movement. Also, In 1968 Minneapolis became the birthplace of the American Indian Movement.

Population: 382,578
Metropolitan Area: 3.3 Million
Major Industries: Commerce, Finance, Transportation, Health Care, Industry, Publishing, Milling, Food Processing, Graphic Arts, Insurance, and Technology
Attractions: Mall of America, Minneapolis Skyway System and Fort Snelling

According to 2010 Census data, 382,578 people live in Minneapolis and roughly 3.3 million people live in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan region. Minneapolis’ population has declined roughly 36% since its peak in 1950. This is mainly due to suburbanization. During the 1950s many suburban municipalities grew around Minneapolis and St. Paul. Today the metropolitan region is the 16th largest metro region in the US. The city of Minneapolis is home to a massive business district and not very much residential area. Still, in 2010 the city’s population density was 6970 people per square mile. This density is high relative to other large, urban cities. The average household size here is 2.2 people and the percentage of family households is 44%.
