The city was founded in 1894 by Dutch settlers and incorporated as a village in 1923.

A symbol of its Dutch Heritage, the Windmill was built in 1937, by Dick Baas and Jake Plummer . It was originally built as a Gas Station/Garage on Hwy 169. The upper portion stored the mechanism that turned the blades, this was made from and an old 1930s Pierce Arrow rear hub and drive shaft and a Winkler Super Power Transmission. In 1974 reconstruction of Highway 169 made it necessary to move the Windmill to land that was donate by George Alderink Sr. In the summer of 2006 the windmill was renovated by Baas Construction. On July 4th 2006, a dedication ceremony was held to designate the city park as the Dick Baas Memorial Park. During the ceremony the Baas Family then presented the City with the original set of blue prints and 1930s photos of the Windmill being constructed. The Dick Baas Park and its picnic area are open to the public. The Picnic Tables and BBQ Grill were purchased with a donation from Tom and Kris Kiel. The Park Sign was designed and painted by DJ Hall Sign & Design, Brainerd MN.

The city upgraded its water system with a new 30,000 gallon water tower and another well, this gives the city to meet the needs of our growing community. This project was funded with Grants and Loans from the Army Corps of Engineers and Rural Development.
