Eagan is the eighth largest city in Minnesota with just over 67,000 residents. It is uniquely located equal distance to both downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul and is just across the Minnesota River from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Organized in 1860, Eagan took its name from Patrick Eagan, the chairman of the city’s first board of supervisors.
The names of many familiar major roadways in Eagan are based in history.
Lone Oak Road
Eagan’s “Lone Oak” was a bur oak tree that stood on the property of Trinity Lone Oak Church and was estimated to be around 200-300 years old. It was a meeting spot in the early years of the community. In 1976, the Lone Oak Tree was given the designation of a Heritage Tree by the Minnesota State Horticultural Department. Unfortunately, the tree started to die and was cut down in 1983. The lone oak is depicted in the city logo as a “Symbol of Strength and Growth.”
Pilot Knob Road
The prominent hill near the intersection of Highways 13 and 55 (where the Acacia Cemetery is located) was a reference point for riverboat pilots as they headed upstream to the landings at Mendota and Fort Snelling. Referred to as “Pilot Knob,” the reference point later became significant for airplane pilots as they made their approach to the airport across the river. A little known fact is that Pilot Knob was once considered as a possible location for the State capitol before Henry Sibley convinced Congress to make St. Paul Minnesota’s capital.
Dodd Road was one of the earliest constructed roads in the area. In 1854, Captain William B. Dodd (who went on to be the founder of St. Peter, MN) was commissioned by the United States government to build a “military road” from Fort Atkinson in Iowa to Fort Snelling. Dodd was promised payment by Congress, but it was never sent. So he gathered funds from settlers and with a work party of ten laborers and a surveyor, constructed the 65-mile path through woods and prairie that we now know as Dodd Road.
In the 1850’s, James Wescott opened an inn in eastern Eagan. The Inn was first a stage coach stop, then a flag stop on the Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad (Minnesota Central), and finally a train depot and commercial center. The general store and telegraph office were operated into the 1920’s and was the site of one of the first telephones in Eagan
Yankee Doodle Road
Prior to World War I, one of the main east–west roads in the City of Eagan was known as Schmidt’s Road. However, during the war anti-German sentiment ran very high. According to city legend, when a resident of German descent was publicly asked where he lived he responded, “Yankee Doodle Road”. And the name stuck.
