MinneCulture | The Tiny City that Almost Wasn’t

MinneCulture | The Tiny City that Almost Wasn’t

In the mid-century, Minnesota’s metro area condensed. Smaller townships incorporated and then were annexed by larger cities. The patchwork of farms and country were filled in with real estate and businesses, creating the cities, suburbs, and exurbs we know today. But in Columbia Heights. one tiny town popped up and got in the way of this smooth transition – and they almost got erased for it.

KFAI’s Matthew Schneeman tells the story of how one mobile home park became and remained the town of Hilltop, Minnesota.
