About County Club

Country Club logo from the city of Edina in Minnesota  The Edina Country Club District has some of the most intersting history behind its development.  In 1924, a man by the name of Samuel Thorpe put together the first modern planned communities in Minnesota. A majority of the homes were constructed between 1924 and 1941 on land originally serving the Browndale Farm (Henry Brown's land) and the old Baird farm (George Baird).

The land use controls exercised by the original Country Club Association formed the basis of the municipal zoning ordinance adopted in 1929.

Samuel Thorpe carefully designed every aspect of the neighborhood to include heavily tree-lined streets and parks, as well as uniform building and design restrictions. Unique to the times, Thorpe ensured that all of the major utilities were installed before the lots were placed on market, thus ensuring that the neighborhood was developed according to his plan. Care was also taken to protect the property values in the form of deed restrictions, valid for 40 years, which were enforced by the Country Club Neighborhood Association led by Thorpe. The regulations were strictly adhered to and dictated, among other things, what kind of trees could be planted and where garbage cans should be placed.
