Victoria is a city located in Carver County, in the state of Minnesota, US with a population of 7,345 as of 2010.
Michael Diethelm is said to be Victoria’s first settler after he settled up a shelter for his wife and children in the year 1851 close to the present day St. Victoria Church and it is where the name of the city was derived which was built on 30 acres of land in 1857 just north of Lake Bavaria. One year after, steamboats from St. Paul started bringing more supplies for the early settlers. The settlement had continued growing from early farmers attracted to the rich soil of the city. The steamboats to the St. Paul and Chaska railroad eventually helped in transforming the local area on its own growing community.
The total area of the city is 9.79 square miles in which 1.78 square miles is water and 8.01 square miles is land. The two main routes of the city are State Highways 5 and 7. Victoria is popularly known as The City of Lakes and Parks as it has more than two hundred acres of reserved land, nine lakes and thirteen parks within its borders. The city is also home to the Carver Park Reserve.
