    Edina ( (listen) ee-DY-nə) is a city in Hennepin County, Minnesota, United States and a first-ring suburb of Minneapolis. Edina began as a small farming and milling community along Minnehaha Creek in the 1860s and became one of Minneapolis's first incorporated suburbs in 1888. In 2019, the population was estimated to be 52,857. After years of being a streetcar suburb, Edina grew into a prototypical post-war suburb in the 1950s. The city was largely built to be car-centric and plays host to the nation's oldest indoor mall, the Southdale Center. The object of white flight from Minneapolis, Edina embraced sundown laws and racial covenants to keep the community white and wealthy. By the late 1990s, Edina had garnered a negative reputation as a predominantly wealthy community and as a center of conservative sentiment in traditionally liberal Minnesota. Since 2000, Edina has become increasingly diverse and progressive. No longer a Republican stronghold, the city is represented at the state and national levels by DFLers. Major corporations, such as Dairy Queen, Great Clips, Edina Realty, and Caribou Coffee, have made their headquarters in Edina, and the city today is known for its shopping, parks, and high quality of life.
