The Township of Eagan was established in 1860 on the southern banks of the Mississippi River. Named after the first chairman of the Board of Supervisors for the Township - Patrick Eagan - Eagan was primarily a community of farmers for the first several decades after being founded. At one time, Eagan’s onion crop earned it the nickname “The Onion Capital of the United States,” a status the area maintained until 1930. In terms of population, the township grew slowly until the 1950s. During that decade, improvements to the interstate highway system helped to prompt the transition from an agricultural community into a thriving suburb.
As the population boomed it was clear that Eagan needed to be able to better provide for its residents. So, over the course of two years (1972-1974) Eagan went from being a township to a village, and from a village to a city. Today, Eagan is home to over 60,000 people.
