The city of Mounds View was located in the former Mounds View Township, which was organized in 1858. In 1958, 100 years after Minnesota's ascension to statehood, the village of Mounds View was incorporated. Post-World War II growth was partially fueled by the proximity of the Twin Cities Arsenal. Calvin Academy relocated to the area in 1999.
