Trip Planner USA  /  Minnesota  /  Dundas
Dundas is a city in Rice County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 1,367 at the 2010 census. Dundas is sometimes found with its next door neighbor the city Northfield, Minnesota. United States Army Major General Ulysses G. McAlexander was born in Dundas in 1864.HistoryDundas was platted in 1857 by the Archibalds: Brothers John Sidney and Edward T., along with their cousin George Archibald named it after their home Dundas_County,_Ontario, Canada. The brothers built mills on both sides of the Cannon River.The ruins of The Archibald Mill a flour mill can still be seen today on the west bank of the Cannon River. The milling industry contributed greatly to Dundas' 19th-century success, and at one point the mills in Dundas were considered among the best in the world.The city's original central business district was located on Second Street, and by 1866 it included two general stores, a library, hotel, shoe store, restaurant, meeting hall and saloon. The neighborhood began to shift once the Minnesota Central Railway built its station on the west side of the river, resulting in the development of Railway Street and the platting of the Railway Addition in 1865. All that remains of the original commercial district is the Ault Store (built in 1866), which started as a general store and housed the town's first library on the second floor; the same building also served as the home of the Dundas News for its operation from 1876-79 when it was bought and absorbed by the Northfield News.
