City History

The Hennepin County Government authorized the organization of Crystal Lake Township in 1860.  The first settler of Crystal Lake Township was John Ware Dow, who arrived on March 26, 1852, followed the next day on March 27th by John C. Bohanon. In the late 1800's the Village of Crystal became disorganized, but was reorganized in 1911 to prevent being annexed by Minneapolis.  In 1936, the Township of New Hope was formed again taking with it the western portion of the Village of Crystal.  There have been several minor adjustments of the boundaries of Crystal in the ensuing years.  The Village of Crystal became a City of the Second Class in 1960.
