History:  

VERMILLION Township, organized April 5, 1858, was named for the Vermillion River, which bears a translation of its Dakota name, as more fully noted on an ensuing page. The city of Vermillion, in sections 15 and 22, incorporated as a village on February 23, 1881, and had an early post office, 1855-58, which changed to Castle Rock; a second post office began in 1874.

Vermillion Lake, quite small, in section 18, Eureka, and the Vermillion River, which lies wholly in this county, are a translation, first published by Nicollet's map in 1843, of the Dakota name. Its origin was probably from the very bright red and orange-colored ocher obtained by the Dakota in seams of Chimney Rock in Marshan, more fully noted on an ensuing page, and of other outcrops of the St. Peter sandstone beside or near the course of this river.

The lower parts of the Vermillion River, after it reaches the Mississippi bottomland, there flowing in two streams northwestward and southeastward to the great river, are named the Vermillion Slough. Four miles southeast of Hastings, this slough or river is joined by the Truedell Slough, named for a pioneer settler, by which it is connected with the Mississippi. Thence southeastward these two rivers, the Vermillion and the Mississippi, enclose Prairie Island, ten miles long, lying mostly in Goodhue County, under which its name and history are again noticed. The name is a translation of its earliest French name, Isle PelTe, called by Radisson "the first landing isle" (MHS Collections 10, pt. 2: 462-73, with a map of this island).
