How Did Hereim Township receive its name?

posted by RCHS November 2005

Have you ever wondered how your township was named? Hereim Township received its name from one the township’s early pioneers.

Ole O. Hereim, Sr. was born on June 7, 1833, at Stavanger, Norway. On May 2, 1954, he sailed for America and landed in Canada thirty-eight days later. Leaving Quebec, he immigrated to Stoughton, Wisconsin. He spent a winter in Wisconsin and the next in Louisiana. Having returned to Wisconsin, he drove a team of oxen from Stoughton to Dodge County, Minnesota, in 1856. There were only three settlers there at the time.

Pelan-Roseau Stage Coach Line

posted by RCHS November 2005

Most residents of Roseau County are unaware of Milt and Irene Sather’s remarkable contributions to the Roseau County history. As a couple they transcribed cemetery tomb stones for the Roseau County Historical Society and Minnesota Historical Society, participated in the transplanting of wild flowers along Highway 11 prior to road construction, they organized the file system in the Roseau County  Historical Society, and continued to add to the files. Milt served as a RCHS board member for twenty-eight years, participating as treasurer and on many committees, included the Roseau County Heritage book. history Milt also wrote several historic articles including this one from the Roseau County Centennial book on The Pelan-Roseau Stage Coach Line, which continues this year’s concentration on Greenbush and the western area of Roseau County.

 “Over More than a century ago, in 1884, traffic across what is now Kittson and Roseau Counties followed, for the most part, the Sandridge trails that had been used for centuries by hunters and trappers and various tribes of Indians, including the Chippewa, Sioux, and Cree as they ventured from the more open lands of the Red River Valley to the pine forests of the Lake of the Woods region.

Pelan-Roseau Stage Coach Line Part 2

 posted by RCHS November 2005

Last week we began the article, “The Pelan-Roseau Stage Coach Line”, written by Milt Sather for the Roseau County Centennial Book. The stagecoach was the main mode of transportation during the early years of Roseau County. Running at first from Hallock to Jadis (Roseau), travelers would go in stages from Hallock to Pelan where they would stay the night at the Halfway House. The next day the stagecoach traveled from Pelan to Roseau, stopping in Greenbush and Badger. Later the stage made the run from Stephen to Roseau. The cost of this trip, including the stay at the hotel and meals, was five dollars. This week we continue examining this history.
