A little history...

The Shingle Creek neighborhood, of nearly 1300 households and 3300 residents, is named for the one mile meandering and historical Shingle Creek that flows through its sleepy residential boundaries to the Mississippi River where the forged roofing shingles in the neighborhood were transported in the early 1900’s.
