History:  

WESTBROOK, organized September 17, 1870, was named for the west branch of Highwater Creek, which flows across the southeast part of this township. The city of Westbrook, sections 29 and 30, was incorporated as a village on February 16, 1901, and platted June 8, 1900, by Interstate Land Co. The first building was a boardinghouse built by Sivert Noreem, who later built the Commercial Hotel. The general store of Ole A. Pederson became the site of the post office in 1888. An earlier post office, West Brook, 1873-87, with Frithsof Riis as postmaster, changed its name to Highwater until 1888, when the new post office organized at Westbrook. The village had a station of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railroad.

Richard Knakmuhs formed the Knakmuhs Agency in 1960, when he bought a very small agency on Main Street in Walnut Grove. In 1977 his son Kerry joined the business and added real estate sales into the mix. In 1987 a major expansion was made when the Tracy Agency was purchased. In 1993 another opportunity came along and we expanded into Garvin. As more family became interested in joining the agency, we found an opportunity in Westbrook and purchased an agency there in 2001 and added real estate sales to the Tracy and Westbrook locations.
