  • Our Story

    Eagle Grove Junction was first located here by the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad in the mid 1800's.  Its location was chosen because of the abundance of natural springs in the area.  This was ideal for the railroad to supply water to the steam engines, and thus, a station was located here.

     

    Eagle Grove received its name many years ago because of an enormous eagle's nest perched high above the Boone River bank in a large grove of oak trees. In 1851, Mr. N. B. Paine came to Wright County, purchased a piece of property and built a log cabin. Directly west of his cabin was the grove of trees that sheltered the bird of our national heritage. The nest was over six feet in diameter and had the appearance of having been located there for some time. It could be seen for miles around. The eagles were at home in the spring and summer of 1855-56, but in the spring of 1857, they were shot and killed by a trapper. Eagle Grove was thus named in honor of the grand old bird of freedom.

     

    Eagle Grove was incorporated as a town in October of 1881 with the first City election being held in 1882. In 1894 the first water plant was constructed, and in 1914, City Hall was built. The first swimming pool, which was used until 2005, was constructed in 1936. The City of Eagle Grove has a mayor-council form of government and provides services such as public safety, public works, and parks and recreation since its inception.
