In 1945 V.S. Peterson conceptualized what would soon become Circle Pines. He imaged a cooperative where even businesses were owned by the entirety of the co-op. This cooperative community structure was new to the area, and only survived three years. In April 1950, the cooperative turned traditional settlement, was incorporated into a village. Though Circle Pines is no longer a cooperative, there are still signs of its unique past. Today, Circle Pines is the only suburban city to operate it’s own natural gas distribution company.
