History:  

REDWOOD FALLS, a city in Redwood Falls and Honner Townships and the county seat, first settled by Col. Samuel McPhail, J. S. G. Honner, and others in the spring and summer of 1864, was platted October 1865 and incorporated as a village March 9, 1876, and as a city April 1, 1891. The name is taken from the falls of the Redwood River, which descends about 140 feet by vertical falls and by rapids in its last three miles. The greater part of this descent takes place in a picturesque gorge close below the city area, within a distance of less than a half mile. The township of this name, having the city in its northeast corner, was organized January 22, 1880. The city is located in an area first opened to white settlers in 1851; the U.S. government built a sawmill at the falls of the Redwood River in 1855 and later a gristmill. McPhail platted the town in 1854 and built the first house; the post office began in 1864. The village had a station serving several rail lines, including the Chicago and North Western. The former county poor farm is the site of the Redwood County Museum and houses the Minnesota Inventors Hall of Fame.
