Mahtomedi is an historic community on the eastern shores of White Bear Lake, which served as network of small cabins and seasonal retreats during the early 1900’s. Many stories are told about the gangsters of the era finding hideouts in the older cabins to escape law enforcement from the central cities. In the 1920’s, a streetcar system connected the Wildwood Amusement Park on the shores of White Bear Lake to the residents of St. Paul. The park is no longer there and the tracks for the streetcars were removed decades ago to make way for the metro bus system.
The city today has over 8,000 residents and the older homes have been converted to year round use and the surrounding farms and forests have been developed into subdivisions of homes serving residents of all ages and family stages.The Mahtomedi School District operates schools of distinction and supports award winning teachers and high achieving student body. Recently several senior housing developments have been constructed as suitable sites have become available making Mahtomedi a town for all ages and interests.
