History

The Glenn Catholic Senior Communities, Inc. (formerly St. Therese Southwest, Inc.) began providing exceptional service to the senior community in 1988. The Glenn Minnetonka started with one independent living building set on original Feltl farm at 1011 Feltl Court, a building now known as The Towers. Under the direction of a dedicated Board of Directors in 2003, The Glenn Minnetonka opened a new addition now known as the Terraces, that included assisted living, memory care and an adult day program.

With the founding principles of a belief in the dignity and value of each individual and the understanding that every senior desires to live in a welcoming, vibrant and supportive community; The Glenn Minnetonka offers a senior community that is not just a place to stay, but a place to LIVE. The Glenn offers the amenities and services that create a vibrant retirement lifestyle. In 2011, The Glenn Minnetonka campus opened on the same principles.

Located in the historic Glen Lake area of Minnetonka, a time-honored suburban community between Highway 7 and Excelsior Boulevard just west of Interstate 494, the area features the conveniences of an established neighborhood with small-town charm and easy access to major highways. The Glenn Minnetonka features independent living, assisted living, memory care and enhanced care suites.

Established as Catholic communities, The Glenn Minnetonka and The Glenn Minnetonka continue to celebrate this heritage as we welcome people of all faiths to enjoy the fullness of life in a loving, compassionate and comfortable environment. A dedicated pastoral care team, supplemented by pastors from within the local faith community, leads spiritual and personal growth activities to all denominations. Our chapels offer residents a place for daily worship, communion and quiet reflection.

During the 1930s, two grocery stores, a couple filling stations, the post office, a garage and a barber shop were located in Glen Lake. It’s said that during the gas rationing of the 1940s, traffic through Glen Lake was so light that a storeowner’s dog often slept in the middle of the street undisturbed for hours. The original one-room Glen Lake School, was east of Glen Lake on Excelsior Boulevard. In 1911, a new brick building with two classrooms was built on the corner of Woodhill Road and Excelsior Boulevard. In 1946 Glen Lake School became part of the Hopkins School District. After being purchased by the city in 1960 for use as a community center, it was torn down in 1990 to make way for soccer fields and a skateboard park.

Today Glen Lake Station Park at the corner of Excelsior and Beacon Hill provides a focus for the commercial area and nearby ball field facilities provide recreational opportunities for residents in the south Minnetonka area. Additionally, existing and planned trails and sidewalks that provide access to greater Minnetonka, Eden Prairie and other surrounding cities, connect the area.

Life is re-characterized by those on the Minnetonka Senior Citizen Advisory Board who are always thinking ahead in order to anticipate the needs, desires and interests of their mature peer group. The fifteen members of this board meet monthly and serve for a two-year term. Expanding horizons are open to seniors who continue to discover opportunities in this vibrant community.
