The U.S.-Dakota Conflict of 1862 Tour
During the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862, at least 450 white settlers and soldiers lost their lives along with many unrecorded Dakota casualties and forced removals. Today we try to understand the events leading up to the conflict along with the grim outcome – the simultaneous hanging of 38 Dakota on December 26, 1862. It was the largest mass execution in US History. The U.S.-Dakota War also was the largest attack on settlers in the history of the United States. To take a self-guided walking tour of sites of the  U.S.-Dakota Conflict, download The U.S.-Dakota Conflict of 1862 Tour Guide

Reconciliation Park
On September 19, 1997, Reconciliation Park, located along the Minnesota River, was dedicated. The park is a place of remembrance and of healing toward one of the most tragic moments in Mankato’s early history. Thomas Miller, Mankato native and local artist, sculpted the white buffalo from a 67-ton block of local Kasota limestone. The monumental sculpture is surrounded by native flowers and prairie grass. The buffalo symbolizes the spiritual survival of the Dakota people and honors the Dakota heritage of this area.

In 2012, an additional memorial was created to honor and remember the 38 Dakota men who were hanged and commemorate the 150th anniversary of the execution.  The monument, designed by Martin and Linda Bernard of Winona, is a 10-by-4-foot leather-looking scroll crafted out of fiberglass. One side bears the names of the 38 men and the other has a poem and prayer. The monument faces south as the Dakota believe the spirits of the dead rise from their body on the fourth day and travel south. The design shows the scroll surrounded by multicolored tombstone-shaped figures, though they symbolize the living, the people of the world looking at the monument and the names.

Benches with the inscription “forgive everyone everything” surround the memorial. While the focus of the memorial is on the 38 names, there is also a distinct message of reconciliation. The effort to build the memorial was led by Vernell Wabasha, wife of Ernest Wabasha, a hereditary Dakota chief. Reconciliation Park is a site to reflect, meditate and remember. “A reconciliation for all people.” Dakota Elder Amos Owen, 1997.

Blue Earth County Historical Society (BECHS)

The Blue Earth County Historical Society is a community non-profit organization that boasts two public facilities in Mankato: the Blue Earth County History Center & Museum and Historic R.D. Hubbard House.

Hubbard House
The Historic R.D. Hubbard House, operated by the Blue Earth County Historical Society, is located at 606 S. Broad Street, Mankato. The historic house museum chronicles the life and times of Mankato flour mill entrepreneur R.D. Hubbard in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Hubbard’s home, built in 1871, was the first private residence in Mankato to have indoor plumbing, electricity and a telephone; and stands as one of the finest examples of Victorian architecture and design in Minnesota. The adjoining Carriage House contains a collection of horse-drawn vehicles and antique automobiles. Victorian gardens landscape the two buildings. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Walk-in guided tours are available seasonally May – September and December; admission charged. Learn more about the Hubbard House.

Blue Earth County Historical Society Heritage Center
The Blue Earth County History Center and Museum, operated by the Blue Earth County Historical Society, is located at 424 Warren Street, Mankato. It features an interactive history museum dedicated to the rich heritage of Blue Earth County, a fully staffed Research Center for historians and genealogists and an extensive book and gift shop featuring unique local items such as Marian Anderson fine art prints. The History Center also hosts traveling exhibits, a community art gallery and hands-on discovery lab for kids of all ages. The History Center is open year-round Tuesday-Saturday; admission charged. Learn more about the Blue Earth County Historical Society Heritage Center.

Betsy-Tacy
Maud Hart Lovelace wrote 13 Betsy-Tacy books from 1940 to 1955. The books were set in Mankato (Deep Valley) at the turn of the twentieth century and told the story of Lovelace (Betsy) and her best friend Frances ‘Bick’ Kenney (Tacy).

“Maud Hart Lovelace is specifically important to Mankato because our history at the turn of the 20th century is recorded within the pages of the Betsy-Tacy books. The books are fiction based on fact. Maud did not rely only on her childhood memories, but was meticulous in her research for accuracy. Most all of the characters are based on real people Maud knew and all of the places were real places in Mankato,” said Julie Schrader, Minnesota Heritage Publishing.

“Reading these books we can ‘feel’ what it was like to live in Mankato when the first automobile came to town and homes got their first telephone. These books are loved by people all over the country and the world, but Mankato has a special connection – because it is OUR history. How fortunate we are to have this period in our history recorded in this way,” said Schrader.

The books were so popular they were reprinted in the 1970s and again in 2000 as a commemorative 60th anniversary edition.

Harper Perennial Classics reissued the six high school books in the Betsy-Tacy series in 2009 and in 2010 reissued the three Deep Valley books. In 2011 HarperCollins reissued The Betsy-Tacy Treasury, an anthology of the first four Betsy-Tacy books. The books have also been translated in many different languages including German, French, Italian and Japanese.

History

History of Blue Earth County


Blue Earth County is located in the heart of southern Minnesota, on the western edge of an area once known as the “Big Woods.” Important features of the county are its many rivers, streams, and lakes. These natural highways were heavily traveled by the Indians who lived in the region for hundreds of years and left their cultural imprint.

The name Blue Earth is a translation of the Dakota Indian word “Mahkato,” meaning “Greenish blue earth.” The name of the city of Mankato would be “Mahkato” if a spelling mistake made when the name was chosen had not changed the “h” to “n”. The name has remained Mankato ever since.

Settlement


Pierre Le Sueur, a French explorer, is the earliest known White man to have come to this part of Minnesota. He arrived at the confluence of the Minnesota and Blue Earth Rivers (the location of present day Mankato) in 1683. Le Sueur found blue-green clay in the banks of the Blue Earth River and, believing that it contained copper, took a sample back to France.

A chemist named Le Huillier declared that the clay did indeed contain copper. Le Sueur returned to the Blue Earth in 1700 and built an outpost called Fort Le Huillier (Le Hillier) as a base of operations. He shipped some 4,000 pounds of clay up the Minnesota and down the Mississippi River, but it is doubted that the shipment reached France and the mining project was never pursued. Fort Le Huillier was abandoned in 1702. Its probable site is marked by a plaque located on Minnesota Highway 66, a short distance south of Mankato.

This area remained under nominal French control until 1803 when, as part of the Louisiana Purchase, it officially passed to the United States. The first detailed maps of the region were made in 1838 by another Frenchman, Joseph Nicollet. The establishment of Minnesota Territory by an act of the United States Congress in 1849 and a territorial government stimulated interest in the Minnesota River Valley as an area for settlement. In 1850, the first steamboat trip starting from St. Paul came up the Minnesota River as far as the mouth of the Blue Earth River. The first White settlers were P. K. Johnson and Henry Jackson, who established themselves at the site of present day Mankato in 1852.

Indian Land


The area was still officially Indian territory until February 14, 1853, when the ratification of the Treaties of Traverse des Sioux and Mendota ended Indian ownership. The County of Blue Earth was created by a division of Minnesota Territory in March 1853. The County originally contained a huge extent of territory to the west, but this was reduced in 1856 to the present boundaries, containing 764 square miles. The first county officials were appointed by the Governor of the territory, Alexander Ramsey. The first election of county officials took place in October of that year, with a total of 28 ballots being cast.

With the ratification of the Treaties of Traverse des Sioux and Mendota land, which had been occupied by Indians was opened to White settlement. The rapid influx of settlers caused friction between the settlers and Indians. Dakota Indians lived on a reservation to the west of present Blue Earth County, and Winnebago Indians lived on a reservation which included eastern portions of Blue Earth County.

Tensions between Indians and settlers, limited supplies allocated to Indian agents on the reservation, and other problems led to the Dakota War of 1862. At the conclusion of the war, several hundred Indian prisoners were tried by a five-man military commission; 303 were condemned to death. The death sentences were commuted by Present Lincoln for all but 38. They were executed on December 26, 1862, in Mankato.

Growth in Blue Earth County


The last decades of the 19th Century saw great growth in Blue Earth County. The railroad arrived in 1868. This acted as the impetus for the development and growth of many of the towns in the county. River traffic continued but lost the commercial business traffic to the railroads. Industry, especially milling, and business firms established themselves in the county. Agriculture played an important role in the economic climate of the area. Educational institutions chose sites here as their base. Cultural activities also increased in number with such events as Chatauquas, circuses, and other festivities.

Blue Earth County became the home for many different ethnic immigrants and Yankee settlers. The most concentrated were the Welsh in Judson and Cambria Townships, the Scots in Mapleton, Germans, and Norwegians in several areas through the county.

Blue Earth County has grown into a prosperous area, blending agriculture, business, industry, education, and culture into a thriving area from which its more than 55,000 residents can expect continued benefits in the future.
