History:  

LONG PRAIRIE Township, organized March 12, 1867, had been occupied 1848-55 by the agency of a reservation for the Winnebago Indians. Long Prairie, the county seat, was platted in May 1867 and was incorporated as a village on December 22, 1883. The name is received from the Long Prairie River, flowing through this county to the Crow Wing River; the stream was named for a long and relatively narrow prairie, from a half mile to one mile wide, bordering its east side for about 20 miles, from Lake Charlotte and Long Prairie village northward to the west line of Fawn Lake Township. When the post office was established in 1850, David Olmsted was the postmaster until he moved to St. Paul in 1853; he was influential in Todd County and the state, and Olmsted County is named for him.
