A Brief History

Mound sits on the western shores of Lake Minnetonka, is approximately 3.1 square miles and is the home to over 9,000 residents. Incorporated in 1912, but founded in the 1850’s, Mound served as an active business district on the shores of Cooks Bay. In 1946, Mound Metalcraft was founded; shortly thereafter the company started designing and creating metal toys and trucks, and eventually it changed names to Tonka Toys Incorporated. Today, Mound provides 32 public parks, 311 public dock sites, a skate park and Dakota Rail Trail.
