History:  

DAKOTA is a city beside the Mississippi, in section 7 of Dresbach Township and section 12 of New Hartford Township. It was incorporated as a village on May 23, 1951. It was laid out in 1855 and developed in 1859 by Nathan Brown, who came to Minnesota in 1847, had a stockyard, and ran a ferry service to Wisconsin. The post office operated 1855-57 and was reestablished in 1875. Once the center of berry growing, the main industry is now apple growing.

Southwind apples are grown on the choice hillsides of a broad, deep valley near the town of Dakota, which nestles on the banks of the Mississippi River. Here, their roots lie deep in the wind-driven loess soil that blankets a deep deposit of limestone rock. Kissed by the dew and mist from the Mississippi, they spend long hours bathing in the sun, gently ripening to full-bodied goodness.
