Towns, unincorporated villages, post offices, hamlets &
trading points of Pioneer Days
TWO municipalities of Yellow Medicine county exist only in the memory of pioneer residents; Yellow Medicine City and Minnesota Falls, once places of considerable importance and candidates for metropolitan greatness, and each in turn “the largest town in the county,” have been removed from the map.
Within the boundaries of the county, in addition to the incorporated villages, are a number of little hamlets and trading points which are entitled to representation in the History of Yellow Medicine County. They are Burr, St. Leo, Lorne and Normania. Before the county became dotted with villages and before the days of rural mail routes, a number of country postoffices were in existence, at some of which were also located a store, mill; or some other business enterprise. The names of some of these will be recognized only by the earlier settlers. Among such postoffices were Silliards, Sorlien Mills, Stony Run, Stavanger, Vineland and Lisbon.
