Beautiful Birchwood Village began as a summer haven for St. Paul folks. The first homes were built in 1876 with a sprinkling of summer cottages on the south shore of White Bear Lake. Prior to the settlement of the area, Indians used its lands to hunt. In fact, an arrowhead was found as recently as the 1970’s. Today, Birchwood Village, a city in Washington County, has a population of 870. Led by Mayor Alan Mitchell, residents celebrate the fourth of July with an annual parade. They have also recently started a concert series on Sunday nights during the summer.
