The lakes geographically define the town's areas, such as Three Points, The Island, The Highlands, Grandview Boulevard and Shirley Hills.Lake Langdon is located immediately west of Mound, between an old Great Northern railroad line and Lake Minnetonka. One of its most notable places is an old ice house and grocery store at the east side of the lake. The store for many years in the 1940s and 1950s was owned and operated by Ed and Pete Sollie, uncles of the Andrews Sisters singing group. Other historic places on the east shore of Lake Langdon are Our Lady of the Lake parochial school, and the Mound Baptist Church, long cared for by Ulrich Eugster, an immigrant to the U.S. from Reute, Switzerland.
