DONALDSON, a city in Davis Township, sections 18-20 and 30, was named for Capt. Hugh W. Donaldson, a veteran of the Civil War, manager of an adjoining farm of several thousand acres, owned by the Kennedy Land Company. It was incorporated as a village on November 21, 1902; its post office was called Davis, 1883-84, when William Couth was postmaster, changing to Donaldson in 1884 at which time Edward Davis became postmaster; Davis, who came in 1879, built the first store, and the post office and township were named for him.

King of Trails Scenic Byway




Trails - Drive U.S. Highway 75 the King of Trails from Canada to Mexico

Information - This trail was previously utilized by Native Americans/settlers and was designated by the State of Minnesota as "The Historic King of Trails" in 2001.  Efforts include an annual marketplace day where communities along Hwy. 75 invite vendors to openly market their goods at select locations.

Waters of the Dancing Sky Scenic Byway


This route tracks the Minnesota-Canada border for nearly half of it's length. As the routes name suggests, this far northern byway offers nighttime visitors an excellent chance of seeing the magnificent Aurora Borealis, better known as Northern Lights. The route touches the shore of the vast Lake of the Woods, and ends at Rainy Lake, another huge border lake, one of many that make up Minnesota's water-based Voyageurs National Park. All these lakes offer extraordinary fishing, and Voyageurs is especially popular as a destination for houseboat vacations, where visitors can rent a floating home to moor in a secluded bay of their choice within the park. State parks along the route include Lake Bronson on the western end, Hayes Lake, Zippel Bay and Franz Jevne.
