History of the Lakes

golf. gather. getaway IN

THE NAME “DETROIT” came about when a French Catholic Priest camped on the shore of the lake with a view of the sun setting across the water. The water was low and revealed a sandbar, creating a narrow strait that glistened in the light of the setting sun. The Priest exclaimed, “What a beautiful detroit,” meaning “strait” in French. Consequently, the city was named Detroit. Due to continuous postal mix-ups between Detroit, Minnesota and the betterknown Detroit, Michigan, a special election was held

DETROIT LAKES— A CITY WITH A PAST From the 1830’s until the 1860’s, one of three branches of the Red River Ox Cart trails, which ran from St. Paul to Canada, came right through the area later to be settled as Detroit. Settlement of this area began in 1871, as the Northern Pacific Railroad etched its way westward through Becker County. Detroit founder, Colonel George Johnston came to Minnesota in 1871 to select lands for the New England Colony. In 1873, Detroit Township boasted the first grain warehouse built west of Duluth on the Northern Pacific Railroad.
