'''Shakopee''' (

The river bank's Shakopee Historic District contains burial mounds built by prehistoric cultures. In the 17th century, Chief Shakopee of the Mdewakanton Dakota (Sioux) established his village on the east end. Trading brought about the city's establishment in the 19th century and Shakopee boomed as a commerce exchange site between river and rail at Murphy's Landing. Once an isolated city competing in the Minnesota River Valley (Minnesota River), by the 1960s its economy shifted to the expanding metropolitan area. Significant growth as a bedroom community (commuter town) occurred after U.S. Highway 169 (U.S. Route 169 in Minnesota) was realigned in 1996 toward the new Bloomington Ferry Bridge.

The city is currently known for the Valleyfair amusement park and the Canterbury Park horse racetrack. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is associated with Shakopee though is located in nearby Louisville Township (Louisville Township, Scott County, Minnesota). Shakopee has an orderly annexation agreement for the entirety of the township with no definite timeline.
