History:  

CLOQUET (retaining the French pronunciation of its last syllable, as in bouquet and sobriquet), incorporated as a city, was named for the Cloquet River, from which, and from other tributaries of the St. Louis River, came the logs of its lumber manufacturing. The map of Stephen H. Long's expedition, in 1823, shows that stream as Rapid River, and it is unnamed on the map by David Thompson in 1826 for the proposed routes of the international boundary; but on Joseph N. Nicollet's map, published in 1843, it has the present title, Cloquet River. It is not used outside of Minnesota as a geographic name, and here was probably derived from some fur trader.
