History:  

PEQUOT LAKES, a city in Sibley Township, sections 10 and 15, platted on March 10, 1900, by Walter and Flora Brown. The city had been called Sibley for an early logger and was renamed by a postal official for the first Indian-sounding name he thought of, which is the name of a former tribe of Algonquian Indians in eastern Connecticut. The post office has been operating since 1896; it had a Northern Pacific Railroad station.
