History

The first settler in Fridley was John Banfill who in 1847 settled and built the Banfill Tavern. During that time the area was called Manomin. Currently, the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts sits on that area.  In 1851, Abram Fridley, for whom the city was eventually named for settled. In 1879 the Minnesota State Legislature changed the name to Fridley and it was only in 1949 that it achieved its incorporation as a village. The first mayor was Carl Hartman who also served as the first police and fire chief of the new community. By 1957, the Village of Fridley became a Home Rule Charter City and about the same time, Fridley experienced an industrial boom. By the end of the 1950s the population in the village grew to over fifteen thousand residents.
