History:  

ROLLINGSTONE Township, organized May 1858, and its city, located on a plateau between two branches of the Rollingstone River, are named from the river or creek. Its Dakota name is "Eyan-omen-man-met-pah, the literal translation of which is 'the stream where the stone rolls'" (History of Winona County, 1883, p. 144). The journal of Maj. Thomas Forsyth, with Col. Henry Leavenworth and the troops who came in 1819 for building the fort that in 1825 was named Fort Snelling, called this stream "the Tumbling Rock."

The village was incorporated on August 5, 1892. When the post office was established in 1860, the postmaster was James S. Drew, a member of the Western Farm and Village Association, a group of New Englanders who tried to colonize the site in 1853 but did not succeed because of poor planning as well as illness among the settlers; most were gone by 1854. A group of Luxembourgers came in 1856; the site was developed with sawmills, and the Chicago Great Western Railroad came in 1888.
