History:  

MOUNTAIN LAKE Township, organized May 6, 1871, derived its name from its former large lake, in which a mountainlike island rose with steep shores and nearly flat top about 40 feet above the lake, having similar outlines to those of the surrounding bluffs and general upland. "The upper part of the island was covered with trees, which could be seen for many miles. This spot served as a landmark and a guide for many of the early settlers. . . . The lake, as known to pioneers, is no more; it has long since been drained, and grains and grasses grow in its old bed." The city of Mountain Lake, of Midway and Mountain Lake Townships, was platted May 25, 1872. The post office was established in 1871, first located in Paul Seegers's general store. The village had a flour mill and grain elevators and a station of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railroad in section 30. The village grew with an influx of Dutch-German Mennonites from southern Russia until about 1910.
