History:  

ARCO, a city in section 31 and 32 of Lake Stay Township, was platted in 1900 as Arcola and first incorporated under that name in June 30, 1903, being named by the Chicago and North Western Railway officials for the ancient city of Arcola in Italy; the name was later shortened to avoid confusion with a railway station named Arcola in Washington County, and the city was reincorporated July 28, 1903. Its post office began in 1900 in the general store of postmaster Christian Larsen; it had a station of the Minnesota and South Dakota Railway.
