Henderson is a city in Sibley County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 886 at the 2010 census.HistoryHenderson was founded in August of 1852 by Joseph R. Brown, and was named for his mother's maiden name.By 1855, Henderson had become a fast growing city as it already harbored more 60 buildings including a hotel, a warehouse, a steam sawmill, as well as Brown's house which functioned as a boarding house, a store and a residence for the Brown family. Henderson quickly became a major distribution center for the inland settlement surrounding the Minnesota River Valley in the following years.By the mid-60's Henderson had two major brickyards, The Mattei and Schwartz Brickyard, who both contributed heavily to the early 1900s brick-style buildings still present in Henderson today.After much debate between Henderson and Gaylord over who should hold the county seat of Sibley County. The county was eventually changed to Gaylord in 1915 from a county-wide vote which cause major population loss to Henderson. Through out the 50 years after this population loss, Henderson's economy became increasingly more centered on agriculture that largely sustain the downtown after the loss of the county seat.
