History:  

LE SUEUR Township and city were founded in 1852, with the village plats bearing this name, which in the next year was given to the new county. Two rival villages, each with a post office, one called Le Sueur and the other Le Sueur City, were incorporated respectively on June 10 and 17, 1858. Nine years later, by an act of the state legislature, March 9, 1867, they were united in a borough town, Le Sueur, which was incorporated as a city March 16, 1891. It was the first county seat until 1875, being then succeeded by Cleveland for one year, and by Le Center since 1876. Its major industry is canning, which began in 1903 with the Minnesota Valley Canning Company, furnishing seed and supervising the growing and harvesting of crops from 200 acres; its first production was 11,750 cases of Evergreen Cream Corn; 25 years later crops were raised on 20,000 acres. The Jolly Green Giant first appeared in 1928, created in the image of Paul Bunyan and representing the biggest peas grown in the world and located in a green valley; the figure became so well known that the company changed its name to Green Giant Company in 1950. The home of Dr. William Worral Mayo was built there in 1859; it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969.
