History:  

COTTONWOOD, a city in Lucas Township, section 9, platted in July 1888, received its name from the adjacent lake, which has cottonwood trees on its shore. The city was first settled about 1871 on a townsite of 372 acres and was incorporated as a village January 12, 1892. The mail was first received at Vineland, Yellow Medicine County, 1873-88, where Ole S. Reishus was postmaster on his homestead; when Reishus moved to the Cottonwood site in 1888, the post office also moved and changed its name; his wife, Igebor O. Reishus, became postmaster; it had a Great Northern Railway station.
