History[edit]

Chisago County's National Register properties reflect its role as an early focus of Euro-American settlement in Minnesota and its evolving land use. An intensive logging industry beginning in the 1830s gave way to agriculture, spurred by railroad access and increased European immigration—particularly Swedish immigration—by the 1870s. Several properties reflect the prosperity achieved by several individuals of this period in the county's booming trackside towns. Around the beginning of the 20th century, Chisago County developed a modest resort and tourism industry.[2]
