History:  

LAPORTE meaning, in French, "the door or gate"), a city in Lakeport Township, was incorporated as a village in May 4, 1908, separating from the township on June 22. The first post office, 1899-1901, was established with the arrival of the Northern Pacific Railroad; Nelson Daughters, who had come in 1898 with his wife, Ann, who died shortly thereafter in childbirth, became first postmaster, naming the site Ann in memory of his wife. In 1899, some Indians came to Daughters, requesting whiskey; when he refused, they returned to Walker, charging him with liquor trafficking; while being taken to Walker for trial, he escaped, returned to Ann, and died in a gun battle with the sheriff's posse. When the post office was reestablished in 1900 with justice of the peace J. C. Stuart as postmaster, the name was changed to Lake Port; the mail was being confused with Lake Park, so Mrs. Stuart named it Laporte after the Iowa town where she was married. Most of the village burned on May 11, 1911, but the community immediately began rebuilding; major fires occurred again in 1930, 1931, 1934, and 1936.

Paul Bunyan Trail

The trail pathway follows the original railroad line built in 1893 by Burlington Northern and abandoned in 1983. It is now among the longest paved "Rails to Trails" in the nation. This new Trail will ultimately link 16 communities between it's source in Brainerd/ Baxter and Lake Bemidji State Park on the north. It is non-motorized, except for snowmobiles. Uses of the Paul Bunyan Trail will include bicycling, hiking, in-line skating, and it is fully accessible for persons with disabilities. The Trail showcases area pine forests, sparkling lakes, colorful wildflowers and wildlife. The user will pass along the shorelines of 21 lakes, through scenic wetlands, and cross bridges over streams and rivers. Trail users will find lodging, dining and support services available at convenient locations and in all price ranges. Vehicle parking is available in each community along the trail. In Baxter, where the Paul Bunyan Trail begins, a temporary parking lot is located at the trailhead. Other lots are located in Merrifield, Pequot Lakes, Pine River and Backus.
