4.7
Akeley is a city in Hubbard County, Minnesota, USA. The population was 432 at the 2010 census.HistoryThe city of Akeley was incorporated on December 30, 1916. It was largely developed by a partnership between lumber magnate T. B. Walker and Healy C. Akeley, who formed the Red River Lumber Company in 1893. General settlement of Akeley began in 1895. After Walker built a sawmill in 1902, Akeley's development skyrocketed. The mill was once the largest in the state of Minnesota. Thomas B. Walker had intended to build the mill in what would later become Walker, Minnesota, but chose Akeley instead because of his wife's disapproval of the bars and brothels in the Walker area.Because of the mill, and the train depot built in 1899, Akeley became a boomtown. Lumberjacks came and went on every freight train. The population swelled from 2,000 to over 3, 500 between 1907 and 1908. Now the town has fewer than 500 residents.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.50sqmi, of which 1.47sqmi is land and 0.03sqmi is water.Demographics2010 censusAs of the census of 2010, there were 432 people, 185 households, and 113 families residing in the city.
