??? On August 20, 1862, Andrew Jackson, a circuit-rider minister, was conducting services for members of the New Sweden Church (Lebanon Lutheran) at the Lundborg family cabin at this site. Young Peter Broberg interrupted to tell his parents that Indians had frightened the children back at home in West Lake, a settlement on the Kandiyohi-Swift county border. The men left to protect their families. Thirteen settlers, including several members of the Broberg and Lundborg families, were killed in the ensuing confrontation at West Lake. Afterwards, Pastor Jackson led a relief and burial party in the area.
