History:  

ALEXANDRIA, settled in 1858, established as a township June 15, 1866, was named in honor of Alexander Kinkead, because he and his brother William were its first settlers, coming from Maryland. The form of the name follows that of the large city in Egypt, which was founded in the year 332 B.C. by Alexander the Great. Fifteen other states have villages or cities of this name. The village of Alexandria was incorporated February 20, 1877, its charter as a city was adopted in 1908, and it was incorporated as a city in 1909. It was surveyed in 1866 and purchased in 1868 by W. E. Hicks, who established a mill, a hotel, a store, and the first newspaper, also donating property for a courthouse, a jail, and Methodist and Congregational churches; he served as first postmaster when the office was established in 1858. The first passenger train on the railroad reached this place November 5, 1878. The village was known as a summer resort during the 1870s.

Fort Alexandria

Fort Alexandria is a nearly exact replica of the old stockade, which was built in 1862 by the Eighth regular infantry on order of the Governor of Minnesota. The original location of the fort was two blocks east of this site. Fort Alexandria was the means of security as pioneers returned to this area following the Dakota Conflict 1860. It was the center of social and commercial activity for the whole region.

Runestone Museum

The Kensington Runestone and the enduring mystery of its origin continue to be the hallmark of the Runestone Museum. The Runestone Museum has been home to the Kensington Runestone since 1958.

Recreation:
Central Lakes Trail

Minnesota's 23rd State Trail, the Central Lakes is a scenic 14’ wide bituminous recreation trail that joins the Lake Wobegon Regional Trail in the city of Osakis. The Central Lakes Trail, www.centrallakestrail.com, is built on an abandoned Burlington Northern Railroad corridor in central Minnesota. In Douglas County, it begins in Osakis and travels northwesterly across three counties to Fergus Falls in Ottertail County.

Central Lakes Trail
Chippewa Park

A visit to Chippewa Park will tell you why people have been drawn to the place across the years. 2000 feet of shoreline of Little Chippewa Lake and twice that on Devils Lake are probably reason enough. Couple that with the unusual land form, a narrow isthmus 300 feet wide and about 2 feet above the lake level, and you have a perfect place to spend a hot summer day.

Chippewa Park
Kensington Runestone Park

The discovery site of the Kensington Runestone, this 193 acre park is the homestead farm of the Ohman family. Runestone Park is used by families for picnics and reunions, businesses and other groups for pleasure outings, and winter sports enthusiasts for skiing, tobogganing, and snowmobiling. There are 2 picnic shelter areas and a range of outdoor recreation activities including, volleyball, horseshoes, and hiking. Several history displays are maintained to help interpret the Runestone Park story.

Lake Brophy Park

The park is a little under 6 acres with 1200 feet of pristine shoreline on a fine fishing lake. A popular spot for summer afternoon picnics, Lake Brophy Park's shelter can accommodate groups of about 25 people nicely. Two examples of fine cut stone craftsmanship remain in the park, leftovers from the depression era work programs of the 1930's and 40's.

Lake Le Homme Dieu Beach

Spruce Hill Park

The pioneer village of Spruce Hill was vacated in the early twentieth century. The property sat undisturbed in the ownership of a former resident until Douglas County acquired it in 1979. Remnants of the early village are evident today only as depressions in the ground and old building foundation pieces. The remains of an earthen dam constructed to power a sawmill are still visible in the landscape.
