History:  

WABEDO Township (accenting the first syllable) received its name from its Wabedo Lake. Warren, writing in 1852 in his History of the Ojibway People, related that an invading war party of the Dakota, about the year 1768, came "into Wab-ud-ow lake, where they spilt the first Ojibway blood, killing a hunter named Wab-ud-ow (White Gore), from which circumstance the lake is named to this day by the Ojibways." The same party, advancing northward, killed three boys gathering rice, whence Boy Lake and River received their name, as noted on a preceding page. Gilfillan spelled Wabedo Lake as "Wabuto sagaiigun, or Mushroom lake." A post office was located on the border of Wabedo and Blind Lake Townships, 1906-35, which was earlier named Estherville, 1904-6, with Esther M. Madson, postmaster.
