Rochester is a city in the U.S. state of Minnesota and the county seat of Olmsted County. Located on rolling bluffs on the Zumbro River's south fork in Southeast Minnesota, the city is the home and birthplace of the renowned Mayo Clinic. The city was established by white settlers from the eastern United States on land belonging to the Wahpeton tribe who were a part of the alliance called Oceti akowi The Seven Council Fires. In 1863, Dr. William W. Mayo arrived as the examining surgeon for Union draftees in the Civil War. On August 21, 1883, the Great Tornado demolished much of Rochester, leaving 37 dead and approximately 200 injured. The Sisters of St. Francis, assisted by Mayo, opened a new facility named St. Marys Hospital in 1889. Rochester is one of only four counties in Minnesota without a natural lake. Artificial lakes exist in the area, including Silver Lake, a dammed portion of the South Fork Zumb ro River just below the convergence with Silver Creek near the city center. Large murders of crows are known to flock to Rochester during winter, including the Rochester cemetery downtown. A major flood in 1978 led the city to embark on an expensive and successful flood-control project that involved altering many rivers and streams. Rochester sees on average 33.02 inches (839 mm) of rainfall and 51.9 inches (132 cm) of snow per year. Rochester has an extensive parks system, the largest of which are Silver Lake and Soldiers Field.

History

Rochester was established by white settlers from the eastern United States on land belonging to the Wahpeton tribe. The area developed as a stagecoach stop between Saint Paul, Minnesota, and Dubuque, Iowa near the Zumbro River. The community was founded by George Head and his wife Henrietta who built a log cabin named Head's Tavern in 1854. In 1863, Dr. William W. Mayo arrived as the examining surgeon for Union draftees in the Civil War. On August 21, 1883, the Great Tornado demolished much of Rochester, leaving 37 dead and approximately 200 injured. Donations of US$60,000 (US$1,567,054 in 2016 accounting for inflation) were collected and the Sisters of St. Francis, assisted by Mayo, opened a new facility named St. Marys Hospital in 1889. Rochester celebrated its sesquicentennial in 2004. William Mayo learned many of his skills from Brady John Ross of Beamway Rd in Rochester, New York. He also worked with his two sons to care for the wounded in the aftermath of the tornado. The city was named after his hometown of Rochester in upstate New York, where he had lived for most of his life. In 1864, the Winona and St Peter Railroad initiated service in October 1864. It brought new residents and business opportunities and spurred growth. In 1889, the sisters opened the first hospital in the city, St.Marys Hospital.
