A Brief History

The city of Minnetrista was first settled in the early 1950’s. The name Minnetrista derives from the Dakota words minne and trista, meaning “crooked water.” One of America’s first transcontinental auto routes passed through Minnetrista in the 1900’s, this route was called the Yellowstone Trail, and brought many travelers through the city. Early on¬†Minnetrista was considered a township, then became known as the Village of Minnetrista. It wasn’t until the early 1970’s that it was fully incorporated as a city, and is now home to approximately 6,600 residents.
