Plotted in 1869, was named from the Chippewa word "Chengwatana" City of Pines. It was a rough lumberjack town in the early days. From here, logs were floated down the Snake River into the St. Croix River to Stillwater. A rich deposit of copper was discovered here and a $250,000 company was formed which sank some 150-foot shafts. Today, the site of the old copper mine is an interesting drive for visitors and a place for the bass fisherman to try his skill along the river. On Lake Pokegema, three miles west, Rev. Frederick Ayer and others established a Protestant Mission and school for Chippewas in 1836.
