When some people think of Minnesota, perhaps beautiful nature, laid back people, and, maybe some pretty crazy sports fanatics come to mind. Certainly nothing snobby or pretentious.

But there are some downright loaded people with money coming out of their ears here. Especially with 10 high and mighty Minnesota cities:

  1. Victoria
  2. Minnetrista
  3. Chanhassen
  4. Shorewood
  5. Corcoran
  6. Lake Elmo
  7. Lino Lakes
  8. Rogers
  9. Mendota Heights
  10. Mahtomedi

These are the cities with the richest residents who have the largest, most extravagant homes in the state of Minnesota. Oh, and these are the poorest places in Minnesota.

How We Determined the Richest Residents In Minnesota

Alright Minnesota, you should know that we came up with this list using facts and figures; not our own opinions.

First, we gathered up all of the places in the state with populations of 5,000 people or more, which left us with 146 places. Then, we looked at each of these places in terms of these wealthy criteria:

  • Median home price
  • Median household income

From there, we ranked each of our 146 places in each category with scores from one to 146. We then averaged each place’s ranking into one overall score, where the highest score went to the city with the most money in 2016. That’s you, Victoria.

This list is all in good fun. Besides, if you know someone in one of these cities, maybe you can ask them their secret. Hard work? Old money? Perhaps a little bit of both.
