Hopkins, Minnesota is a living piece of mainstreet history It is still a thriving town of 17,000, 15 miles west of Minneapolis. Since Hopkins is contained in four miles, as a resident, you can walk to its mainsteet/downtown area to a post office, library, movie theater, coffee shops, antique shops, performing arts center, church, grocery store, and much more. Hopkins started out in the late 1800s and by the early 1900s it was established as a town and has been home to Minnesota Moline and Threshing Corporation, known nationwide. Now it is the home to Super Valu, the largest grocery distributor in the country. Hopkins is the quintessential place to live, work and raise a family. Once you call Hopkins your home, you won't want to live anywhere else.
