History:  

The town (now a city) of Wabasha, which was named in 1843 for the last of these three leaders, is situated at a distance of 30 miles up the Mississippi from his village. It was at first called Cratte's Landing, for the earliest white man to build his home there, in 1838.

WABASHA, the county seat, founded and named in 1843, as related at the beginning of this chapter, was platted in 1854 and was incorporated as a city March 20, 1858. The city is in Pepin and Greenfield Townships. Augustin Rocque built a trading post here in 1833, and Father Ravoux built a Catholic church in 1845; the post office began as Nelsons Landing in 1848 in Chippewa County, Wisconsin Territory; was transferred to Wabasha County in 1850, with Alexis P. Bailly as postmaster, and the name was changed to Wabashaw; it had a station of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad.
