Overview of Prior Lake

Prior Lake is a growing suburban community near the edge of the Twin Cities metro area in Minnesota. Encompassing 18.3 square miles, this city offers both a small-town feel and big potential: Its population has grown more than 43 percent since the 2000 census. Prior Lake is now home to nearly 22,800 people. Considered by many to be one of the area's most up-and-coming suburbs, Prior Lake is a fun and family-friendly place to call home.

The Village of Prior Lake was first surveyed in 1875. It took many years for the village to develop, but numerous railroad projects, a flour and feed mill, a general store and a newspaper eventually brought a sense of community to the area. In 1879, the Grainwood House opened to the public. The house was designed to house grand balls and parties for the Minnesota elite. It provided employment for local residents and helped the town grow into a known destination. By 1891, Prior Lake was officially incorporated.

Throughout the years, the small town has grown and evolved. Most recently, it has experienced a wave of suburban development as Twin Cities workers move farther outside the cities. Those searching for Prior Lake apartments for rent will love the small-town appeal and easy highway access of this growing city.
