History:  

TRACY, a city in Monroe Township, platted in 1875, incorporated as a village February 5, 1881, and as a city August 3, 1893, was named in honor of John F. Tracy, a former president of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway. Its post office was called Summit, 1874-75, and transferred to Lyon County from Redwood County; it was next called Shetek, 1875-77, and then became Tracy. While it was Summit, Levi Montgomery was the postmaster on his homestead, the name relating to this being the highest point on the railroad between Chicago and Lake Campeska, S.Dak.; when Montgomery left his claim during the grasshopper scourge, the post office was moved to the new village, called variously Shetek, Shetek Station, or Shetek Bend, with postmaster Horatio N. Joy in his store, the first building in the community; it had a station of the Winona and St. Peter Railroad in section 23.
