History:  

HANCOCK, a city on the border of Hodges and Moore Townships, founded in 1871 when this railway line was completed to Morris, received its name in honor of Joseph Woods Hancock, who was born in Orford, N.H., April 4, 1816, and died in Minneapolis, October 24, 1907. He came to Red Wing in 1849 as a missionary teacher among the Indians; organized a Presbyterian church there in 1855 and was its pastor until 1861; was superintendent of schools for Goodhue County, 1864-81; author of Goodhue County . . . Past and Present, by an Old Settler (349 pp.), published in 1893. He continued to reside in Red Wing until about a week before his death. The city was platted in 1872 and incorporated as a village on February 9, 1881; the original site was in section 3 of Moore Township. The post office was established in 1871; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway.
