The city in Zumbrota and Minneola Townships was incorporated as a village on February 14, 1877. Its first store was erected in October 1856 by Thomas P. Kellett, who became the first postmaster in 1857; other businesses included a cheese factory, mills, elevators, and a creamery. The city was the site of the 1857 Zumbrota Covered Bridge, the only existing covered bridge in Minnesota and the first bridge built over the North Branch of the Zumbro River. Flood damage in 1863, 1865, and 1869 required extensive replacement of bridge sections, the latter year's work remaining until 1932 when the bridge was removed to the fairgrounds.
