The first post office was called Harmony, which was so named because the Maine postmaster James A. Dunsmoor named his house after him. Harmony and then called it Richfield from 1863 - 97. Edina founded her own parish in 1888, and a division approved later on 5 April 1889 gave birth to the village of Edina. The division of Richfields in 1886 created a village, St. Louis Park, but a second post office was established in the Richfields Center from 1892-97, which remained in Richfields until 1903. In 1905 Fort Snelling seized the section east of 34th Avenue, in 1941 a section from East Richland went to Minneapolis - Saint Paul International Airport, and Wold Chamberlain Field, the city airport, separated the villages in 1955.
