On This Date in Minnesota History: December 11

December 11, 1979 – “In 1872 a newspaper called the Big Woods Citizen began to lend an influence to the [Delano] community.  For many settlers this paper brought the only news of the state, national and international events.  It contained local news, serialized fiction, and a healthy dose of editorial opinion.  In 1881, the name of the paper was changed to the Delano Eagle.  This paper has served the community continuously since its inception in 1872.”

“In 1883 the Delano Eagle moved from a little frame building on Third Street into the brick building on Railroad Avenue.”
Its offices are now located in Osseo, Minn. The Eagle Newspaper Office in Delano was added to the National Register of Historical Places on this date.
