History:  

BROOTEN, a city in North Fork Township, with Pope County, founded with the building of the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (Soo Line) in 1886, was named for one of its Scandinavian farmers. The village was incorporated on February 16, 1892. The townsite was on land owned by Reier O. Liabraaten, and the site was given a form of his name; that family was known as the Brootens from then on. The early site in section 31 had a station of the Soo Line, Embrick E. Knudson was postmaster when the post office was established in 1886; Knudson was earlier postmaster at North Fork.
