ⓘ Kandiyohi, Minnesota

Kandiyohi was laid out in 1869, when the railroad was extended to that point. In 1869 the Minnesota legislature voted Kandiyohi to be the new state capital due to its central location. The bill was vetoed by governor William Rainey Marshall on the grounds that "he western treeless districts" further out from Kandiyohi would place the capital away from the likely population center.

Kandiyohi was derived from the name Sioux means "where the Buffalo fish."
