History:  

TAMARACK is a village of the Northern Pacific Railroad in Clark Township; incorporated as a village on July 26, 1921, and separated from the township on October 18, 1921; grew up out of the extensive peat- and tamarack-covered bogs when the Northern Pacific laid track from Duluth to Brainerd. The first families arrived in the area about 1874; although the community suffered great damage during the Hinckley fire of 1894 and the 1918 fire, a land boom followed; its post office began in 1898.
