Le Sueur: Town on the River

Randen, Larry C
This history of the Minnesota River town of Le Sueur was compiled as a Bicentennial Horizon History Project. It provides information on pre-town settlement issues of glacial history, American Indian inhabitants, and explorations (particularly by Le Sueur). Town settlement in the 1850s is discussed, covering the topics of naming the town, the first settlers, and immigration. Post-settlement is also explored, including such issues as transportations (e.g, river traffic, roads), natural disasters (e.g., floods, snowstorms), business and industry, education, churches, and town celebrations.
