History:  

SAUK RAPIDS Township was organized in 1854, and the village was platted in that year but was not separately organized until 1881. The village was known as Washington in 1850 when J. C. Ramsey and Henry Jackson laid out a townsite at the foot of the Sauk Rapids; it had a station of the Northern Pacific and Great Northern Railroads in section 23, two flour mills, a cheese factory, a brewery, several hotels, a number of general and specialty stores, and two weekly newspapers. This village was the county seat from the organization of the county in 1850 until 1902, when the county offices were removed to Foley, as before noted. The village separated from the township in 1927. Sauk Rapids derived its name from the adjoining rapids of the Mississippi, called Grand Rapids by Zebulon Pike in 1805 and mapped by him as Big Falls, falling about 20 feet in the first mile below the mouth of the Sauk River, mapped by Pike as Sack River, which comes in from Stearns County.

GCN, the Global Christian Network, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It was founded by a group of international visionaries who wanted to see the gospel broadcast around the world in the richness of diverse cultures, through the creation of innovative television programs. After joining in a covenant relationship, this group pooled their resources, and created a satellite network with an international flair unlike any other.
