History:  

Long before it ever became an incorporated village, a group of Native Indians lived along the banks of the Kettle River from where the community is today to a point about 5 miles downstream. The Government Road between St. Paul, MN and Superior, WI came through that area in the 1860s. A bridge was constructed across the Kettle River at what was called the Rock Dam. On the south side of the river a station was built. There stagecoaches stopped to change horses and allow passengers to get out and stretch their legs and have a lunch. It was at this location where the first Europeans settled. In 1870 the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad was completed in this region. A depot was built about two and one half miles upstream from the Rock Dam. The depot was named Kettle River Station. The community began to grow near the railroad station. On February 14, 1893 an election was held at the school house to decide if the settlement should be incorporated as a village. A total of 22 votes were cast, 19 favoring incorporation. The Village of Rutledge was named after a local lumberman Edward Rutledge who had built several mills in the area. James D. McCormack served as the first Mayor.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

RUTLEDGE, a city in sections 28, 33, and 34 of Kettle River Township, was incorporated as a village on February 17, 1893. It was first called Kettle River when the post office opened in 1881, changing to Rutledge in 1892. Located on the Kettle River, it had a sawmill by 1870 and a station of the Northern Pacific Railroad.
