ⓘ Watkins, Minnesota

Watkins has a German-Catholic heritage with a history dating back to 1886 with the building of the Minneapolis and Pacific Railroad. The site of the village was on a farm then owned by Danville D. Spaulding and it was laid out by Spaulding, Alonzo D. Spaulding and the railroad in June 1887. The plat was filed on August 22, 1887. The post office began in 1887. Watkins was established as a Village on May 2, 1893. It’s a city in section 2 of Forest Prairie Township, and it was named by officers of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Sault Ste. Marie Railroad for an official of the railroad. Nothing more is known about the man the town was named after. Joseph Vossen and Alonzo D. Spaulding had the first business, a lumber yard and grain storehouse in 1887. Six months later, Vossen bought out Spaulding to run the business by himself. Watkins was separated from the Forest Prairie Township on March 23, 1917. Minnesota State Highway 55 serves as a main route in the community, while CSAH #2 runs north and south through the City. The population was 962 at the 2010 census. On July 11, 2016, an EF 1 tornado tore through town, causing damage to trees and homes along with other buildings, taking part of the roof off the nursing home. Luckily, only one person was injured.
