History of Lakeville

Lakeville had its origins back in 1853 when Captain William B. Dodd designed and directed the construction of a road that would serve as a practical land route connecting the military forts in St. Paul and Faribault.

Shortly after the road was built, J.J. Brackett, who transported mail, supplies, and travelers along this route, chose Lakeville as an ideal site for a town because it was roughly halfway between St. Paul and St. Peter. Griffin Phelps, who worked for Brackett, is believed to have been the first real settler. In 1855, Brackett platted 250 acres and named it Lakeville because it was near Prairie Lake, now known as Lake Marion. By 1858, the tiny town of Lakeville, located near the intersection of today’s Co. Rd. 50 and Dodd Blvd., contained a general store, two hotels, a boarding house, a blacksmith shop, a saloon, and a shoe shop.

When the Hastings and Dakota Railroad line was built in 1869, railroad officials tried to buy land in Lakeville to build a depot. The owner refused to sell, so the railroad bought 20 acres a half a mile east, put up a platform and named the area Fairfield. It wasn’t long before existing businesses moved from the original town site to Fairfield, and new businesses were also established at the new town site. It took nine years for business owners and residents to get Fairfield’s name changed to Lakeville. In 1878, they decided they wanted a government separate from Lakeville Township, which encompassed the rural area, and sought incorporation as the Village of Lakeville. Agriculture was the major industry, with several grain mills that handled crops grown by area farmers and a creamery that made cream into butter. The population at the turn of the 20th century was 373.
