Search Montevideo Minnesota

Historic Chippewa City was begun in 1965 with the preservation of a rural school house. Since that time, 23 buildings have been moved in from throughout the county or built on site to form this historic village. Some of the buildings that can be seen are: the Millinery and Dress Shop, the Print Shop, the Law Office, the Fire Department, and the Post Office. Brought to Historic Chippewa City in 1975, the Post Office was the original Reeser Post Office located three miles northeast of Watson. Built in 1870 by Hans O. Lund, the Reeser Post Office served the Watson area until 1880 when a post office was established in Watson. Inside a hand made loom and post office boxes, donated from the Watson Post Office, are on display.
