History of Wayzata:
Wayzata is rich in history!
The name Wayzata (pronounced Wise-etta) is derived from the American Indian word Waziyata, which had almost a mystical connotation to the Sioux tribes who originally inhabited the area. “Waziya” was their god of the North, a giant who blew the cold winds from his mouth. With the suffix “ta” added, the name meant “North Shore”. Though Lake Minnetonka was discovered in 1822, it was not until 1852 that 2 pioneer families settled on the present site of Wayzata. Over the next few years others followed. A town site was laid out and several establishments sprang up, among them a general store, a sawmill, a post office, and a log schoolhouse. Source
