A Little Background on Brainard

This community, which straddles the Mississippi River, was originally inhabited by the Ojibwe Native Americans.

Later, Europeans settled here and used the land as a site for a railroad crossing.

The community was named after the wife of Northern Pacific railroad president John Gregory Smith in 1870 and continued to thrive and grow because of the trading in the area and the location of the railroad in the community.

Lumber and paper, as well as agriculture in general, were the primary industries for the area for many years. The railroad helped diversify these industries.
