History:  

WABASSO, a city in sections 23 and 26 of Vail Township platted in September 1899, was incorporated May 1, 1900. Its name is from Longfellow's Song of Hiawatha, for the Ojibwe word wabos (pronounced wahbose), meaning "a rabbit." The site was developed by the Chicago and North Western Railway in 1898 and platted by the Western Town Lot Company as four full blocks and two partial blocks, lots selling at auction on November 1, 1899. The post office was established in 1900, with hardware store owner John H. Rahskoph as postmaster.
