Mahtomedi (play /mɑːtˈmd/ mah-toh-mee-dy) is a city in Washington County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 7,676 at the 2010 census.[1] Mahtomedi is considered to be a suburb of St. Paul, and is located between St. Paul and Stillwater.

The city name is from the Dakota for Bear (mahto) Lake (mde).



Mahtomedi is about 15 miles northeast of St. Paul, the capital of Minnesota. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.0 square miles (13 km2), of which 3.6 square miles (9.3 km2) is land and 1.4 square miles (3.6 km2) (28.23%) is water, part of which is White Bear Lake. Interstate 694 and Mahtomedi Avenue are two of the main routes in the community.

The city of Willernie is completely enclosed within Mahtomedi.


Mahtomedi was originally a community of cottages and summer homes on White Bear Lake. The city grew when the St. Paul and Duluth Railroad connected the city to St. Paul in the 1870s. Additionally, the Minneapolis and St. Paul Suburban Railroad Company reached Mahtomedi in 1892, with streetcar service beginning in 1899.[4]

This service by Twin City Rapid Transit solidified Mahtomedi's reputation as a recreation destination, and the Wildwood Amusement Park was established on the shores of White Bear Lake. The trolley line ran through the city and brought people to go not only to the park, but also to the Piccadilly Restaurant. The park went out of business during the Great Depression. The Piccadilly, renowned as a haunt for gangsters during Prohibition, remained open until 2007.


Mahtomedi is home to its own district of schools, which services Dellwood, Grant, Hugo, Mahtomedi, Pine Springs, Willernie, and parts of Lake Elmo, Oakdale, Stillwater, and White Bear Lake:

  • Wildwood Elementary (K-2) (commonly referred to as 'Wildwood')
  • Oscar Henry Anderson Elementary (3-5) (commonly referred to as 'OHA' or 'OH')
  • Mahtomedi Middle School (6-8) (commonly referred to as 'MMS')
  • Mahtomedi Senior High School (9-12) (commonly referred to as 'MHS')

The Mahtomedi Area Educational Foundation (MAEF) was established in 1988 to support Mahtomedi public schools, staff and students. Its mission is to fund educational excellence.[5]

Half of Century College, a member of the MNSCU system, is located in Mahtomedi. The other half is located in White Bear Lake, which is the mailing address for the college. Century Avenue, which runs north and south, is the dividing line between Washington and Ramsey counties and between White Bear Lake and Mahtomedi. A long footbridge extends between the West Campus and East Campus of Century College.


The school colors of Mahtomedi Senior High School are blue and gold and the mascot is the Zephyr. Mahtomedi is well known for its girls' and boys' soccer and also for its football teams. The girls team won the state championship in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008. The football team won the state championship in 2005 in an overtime win against the Academy of Holy Angels by one point. On November 5, 2009, Mahtomedi's Boys Varsity soccer team won its first state championship with a 3-0 victory over Hermantown. The Mahtomedi Zephyr gymnastics team has also won state 10 times, winning their first in 1982. The Zephyr mascot originally came from the 1930s car 'Lincoln Zephyr'. In the 1930s, much of what is now Mahtomedi was organized as Lincoln Township.
