History:   

MORA, a city in Arthur Township, was platted in May 1882, when by popular vote it succeeded Brunswick as the county seat. It was platted by Myron R. Kent, who was first postmaster in 1883; the name was suggested by Israel Israelson, who came in 1871 to the Lewis Lake area, for his home town in Dalarna, Sweden, and so Kent requested that name for the post office. It was incorporated as a village on February 16, 1891. The first permanent resident was Alvin J. Conger, who came to Minnesota in 1859, established a trading post at Spring Brook Hill, two miles southeast of Mora, which he abandoned in 1861, and lived in other Minnesota places until 1882, when he arrived in Mora, later building a hotel.
