History:  

ROTHSAY, a city in sections 25 and 36 of Tanberg, governed with Otter Tail County, was named by officers of the railway company for Rothesay, a seaport and watering place about 30 miles west of Glasgow, Scotland. This is the only use of the name in the United States. The city was incorporated as a village on March 5, 1883. The Great Northern Railway came in 1879, and the post office began in 1880 with postmaster Anders B. Pederson.
