Living in Eagan, MN
Although it no longer holds its former title as “The Onion Capital of the United States,” Eagan is still frequently recognized as being one of the country’s best places to live. Founded in 1860 and named for its first board of supervisors chairman, Patrick Eagan, the community remained a small farming town until the 1950s, when interstate construction helped it become a more suburban locale. Rapid population growth in the following decades brought Eagan to its present size of just over 64,000 residents.
Due to its convenient proximity to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport, Eagan was once the home of Northwest Airlines and it remains blessed with easy transportation access. The city maintains global perspective as a landing spot for area visitors and home to a major Thomson Reuters office. Filled with parks and lakes, it is serene and quiet. Rentals in Eagan provide access to natural beauty, friendly culture and many nearby attractions.
