History:  

JASPER, a city with Rock County, in the south edge of Eden, incorporated May 13, 1889, was named for its quarries of red quartzite, commonly called jasper, an excellent building and paving stone. Twelve blocks were platted on April 19, 1888, by Pipestone County surveyor Alfred S. Tee on part of the Joseph Warren Drew homestead. The main industry was the quarries nearby. The village had a station of the Great Northern Railway; the post office was established in 1888, with newspaper publisher Selah S. King, postmaster.
