History:  

Aitkin Township bears the same name as the county. Its village, also bearing this name, was founded on September 13, 1870, as a station of the Northern Pacific Railroad, which in that year was built through the county, when Nathaniel Tibbetts, then with a surveying party, selected a claim of 160 acres in sections 23 to 26 to which he brought his family in 1871. The next year, in the county organization, it was made the county seat; it was incorporated on August 19, 1889, and re-incorporated on March 16, 1915. Its post office was established in 1872, with Tibbetts as first postmaster; see also LANKIAGUN.

In the village of Aitkin and westward, a beach ridge of gravel and sand, having a height of three to five feet, marks the south shore of a glacial lake, which existed during a geologically very short time in the broad and shallow depression of this part of the Mississippi Valley. It was first described and mapped by the present writer in Volume IV of the Final Report of the Geological Survey of Minnesota, published in 1899, being then known to extend from the edge of Crow Wing County eastward and northward in Aitkin, Spencer, and Morrison Townships.

Great River Road

Travel the Aitkin area and create a historic adventure on the Mississippi Crossings from Grand Rapids to Little Falls following the Great River Roadways. The Mississippi Crossings is named for its history as a crossway of transportation by river, by rail, and by road. The voyagers, fur traders, and loggers have traveled these crossways-and today vacationers follow the heritage. The river was the main highway for the Native people of Minnesota, followed by the fur traders and the loggers. Today, many of the 25 steamboat landings still are water access and established camping sites.
