Otter Tail County is celebrating 150 years…of what?

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of  the county. On September 12, 1868, commissioners held their first official meeting in Clitherall, thereby officially establishing Otter Tail County.

Why is this important?

“When a society or civilization perishes, one condition can always be found. They forgot where they came from.”  – Carl Sandburg

This milestone provides an opportunity to reflect on our county’s past as well as celebrate our culture and future. Sandburg’s quote is a simple reminder that without an understanding of our history, of who we are and where we came from, we can lose our identity.
