History:  

KETTLE RIVER, a city in Silver Township, section 9, is named for the river, a translation of its Ojibwe name, Akiko sibi. The original townsite plat was called Finland; the Finnish word Kattilajoki means "kettle river city." Its post office was established in 1910, with Joseph Winquist postmaster in his general store; it absorbed the Kalevala post office in 1913. The store was destroyed in the 1918 forest fire. The city had a station of the Great Northern and Soo Line Railroads.

The Kettle River area of Carlton County Minnesota, was settled by a large concentration of Finnish Immigrants in the years leading up to the First World War and the influence of those immigrants is still noticeable even today.

On October 12, 1918, a forest fire caused by sparks on the local railroads left much of western Carlton County area devastated. Several hundred persons killed by the fire and thousands more left homeless. The only building left standing in Kettle River following the fire was the bank that was made of brick. This building still stands in Kettle River, near the center of the town on the west side of Minnesota Highway 73.

Following the fire, with most people homeless and destitute, the Spanish Influenza outbreak of 1918 wreaked even more havoc on the local peoples, taking more lives.
