Since a chaotic Feb. 18 shooting, Maplewood City Council members have received numerous concerns and complaints about Stargate Bar & Nightclub from residents of Maplewood, Roseville and St. Paul. The club’s location at Rice Street and Larpenteur Avenue places it near the intersection of the three cities.
Bob Jensen - President of the Maplewood Area Historical Society
The written history of Maplewood begins about 165 years ago when European and French-Canadian settlers began farming in this area. Prior to this time, the land was inhabited by the Dakota Indians with occasional visits by French and English fur traders and explorers. The landscape was a mix of scrub oak and prairie with many wetlands and lakes.
Susan Kent, 52, held on to her Senate District 53 seat by a narrow margin on Nov. 8, while her DFL colleague in the state House, JoAnn Ward of Maplewood, defeated her opponent in District 53A by nearly 20 percentage points.
