Here in 1856 settlers from Maine established a community that grew into a vigorous pioneer village including three churches & stores, two lodge halls, blacksmith shop, cheese factory - all built near the site of a 2½-story tamarack fort used during the Sioux outbreak of 1862.

With the coming of the Soo Line in 1886, most buildings were moved to Kimball. The last to remain burned in 1919.
