Celebrating Our Past

2002 was the year of the Mankato Area Sesquicentennial Celebration, honoring the early settlers, and the vitality of today’s Mankato area with many special events. Eagle Lake celebrates the 100th anniversary of its incorporation in 2002, and Mapleton, Amboy, and Rapidan will celebrate in 2003 and 2004.  

Blue Earth County’s First Settlement (reprint of parts of an article by William S. Sargent, Register of Deeds, June 1859)

The Mankato Weekly Record of July 5, 1859, offered this extensive survey of county settlement from 1852-1859. Many persons and topics of various communities are covered, giving a wealth of information and interest to today’s writers and researchers.
