History:  

The area that became Apple Valley was first established in 1858 as Lebanon Township, and remained a farming community for nearly a century. In the mid-1950s, residential developments started replacing farmland.[8] Orrin Thompson, a real estate developer, was responsible for the city's early development. He contracted a company to determine where the next growth in the Twin Cities would be. It was one-half of a mile from County Road 42 and Cedar Avenue. Thompson bought the first houses and streets from the Brobacks, who built the city's first four houses. The firm that selected this area was in Apple Valley, California, so Thompson took that name for the development. An alternate explanation for the name change exists, however. According to local developer Henry Broback, Lebanon Township was renamed Apple Valley because "...when you drive east on (County Road) 42 and turn to enter Lebanon, it reminded them of Apple Valley, California, which was a nice community." Voters in the township voted to incorporate in the 1968 general election. They also selected the name Apple Valley over the name Lebanon Valley by a vote of 1376 to 757.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

APPLE VALLEY, a city that was Lebanon Township until the village incorporated on January 1, 1969. The name was chosen by the major developer, Orrin Thompson, for Apple Valley, Calif., the Minnesota River valley, and the apple trees planted at each home in his development. The Minnesota Zoological Garden opened there in 1978.
