Prior Lake’s rich history starts in the 1850’s when the rest of areas around and were developing into farm areas. At that time, Prior Lake was arising as a major resort destination. People from all across the United States began to build summerhouses and lake homes around the namesake lake. The beautiful lake areas attracted enough attention that eventually, when the Milwaukee and Railroad went up in the middle of the century, the resort community boomed. Beginning in the 1880’s, the historic Grainwood Hotel began to host guests from all over the world. But by the 20th century, the resort area attracted enough attention to fill the areas with residential homes. Today, with the construction and improvement of Highway 13 and the appearance of commercial areas and malls, Prior Lake gives residents all the conveniences of suburban life while still maintaining the beauty and atmosphere of the lakeside resort it once was.
