History:  

Kasota was platted in 1855. Kasota is a name derived from the Dakota language meaning "cleared off".

On July 1, 1892, the Sontag Brothers, John Sontag and George Contant, and their partner in crime, Chris Evans, tried to rob a train between St. Peter and Kasota along the Minnesota River. The bandits acquired nothing of value during this holdup, but their activities came under the review of Pinkerton detectives and both were apprehended in June 1893. year.

Babcock also was the first to begin quarrying Kasota limestone in and around the city of Kasota. The Babcock Company was the chief stone company throughout the early history of the city, and according to the Kasota Historical Society the relationship between the stone company and the city was less than spectacular. At one point the Babcock Company decided to blast within the city limits. This led to the creation of the park on County Road 21 in the town center, after the company was forced to fill in the quarry near the homes of city residents.[citation needed]

During the 1880s, the stone industry experienced an unexpected boom. It was during this time that C.W. Babcock took over the business from his father. He began applying modern quarrying methods, and in 1889 he formed a partnership with Tyrrell Swan Willcox, an immigrant from Rugby, England, who was instrumental in promoting the use of polished Kasota Stone for interior and exterior residential use. Much of the industry's boom was caused by the expansion of the railroads westward, requiring large quantities of stone for trestles and culverts.

In the early 1980s, the Babcock Company went bankrupt. The Vetter Stone Company subsequently bought the Babcock quarries, further expanding the business, which currently operates just outside the Mankato city limits. The Vetters were former employees of the Babcock Company who left to start their own company in the 1950s. The former location of the Babcock Company plant in Kasota is now occupied by Door Engineering, a company manufacturing industrial doors. Currently much of the former Kasota quarry is occupied by Unimin Corporation, who mine silica sand for hydraulic fracturing ("fracking").

Kasota stone was selected as the primary stone in the building of the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. as well as the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis, IN.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

KASOTA Township, settled in 1851, organized May 11, 1858, took the Dakota name of its village, in sections 29, 32, and 33, which was platted March 23, 1855, and was incorporated on April 28, 1890. It means, as noted by Prof. A. W. Williamson, "clear, or cleared off; the name sometimes applied by the Dakotas to the naked ridge or prairie plateau south of the village." This Kasota terrace of the valley drift, three miles long from north to south and averaging a half mile wide, is about 150 feet above the river and 75 feet lower than the general upland.
