City History

In 1852 there was a small trading post that sat at the junction of Credit River and the Minnesota River. Soon after, Hamilton Landing was built to where many Scottish and Irish settlers landed after boarding a steamboat at Fort Snelling, and formed a small village. As more and more people continued to arrive, shops and homesteads were built with farming and trading being the primary industries. The first railroad tracks were laid in Hamilton in 1865, and hosted the first steamboat locomotive in the state. A post office was established one year later.
