It filled in as the gathering place for the town of Inver Grove before the village converged with Inver Grove Township to make what is presently known as Inver Grove Heights. Before it fell into neglect during the 1990s, the block building filled some needs. It was a gathering place for the Village of Inver Grove, which was consolidated in 1909 and was a one-square-mile plat on the riverfront that chosen its own city hall leader and committee, totally separated from Inver Grove Township The village hall was utilized as a transitory schoolroom, a city lobby and workmanship show space. The town existed until it converged with the township in March 1965 as the new Inver Grove Heights. Once the favorite spot of city leaders and the site of significant open choices, the village hall in Inver Grove Heights is currently a deserted structure with spray painting scarred walls and barricaded windows.But city pioneers are hoping to inhale new life into the town corridor and another significant verifiable structure in Inver Grove Heights as a component of the Heritage Village Park venture.
