Hopkins High School was founded in 1908 in downtown Hopkins as the first high school serving the western suburbs. It moved to a new state-of-the-art building on Highway 7 in 1955, which closed as a high school in 1982. The current Hopkins High School on Lindbergh Drive in Minnetonka was completely remodeled in recent years for 21st century world-class learning.
Contributions of memorabilia are from the Hopkins Historical Society and Hopkins High School Archives.
