Pequot Lakes

Trip Planner USA  /  Minnesota  /  Pequot Lakes
Pequot Lakes is a city in Crow Wing County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 2,162 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Brainerd Micropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryAccording to the Pequot Lakes Heritage Preservation Commission, the city once called Sibley and Frogtown was renamed as Pequot. In 1900, Walter and Flora Brown filed their plat for the E 1/2 of the SW 1/4 section 10 in T136N-R29W under the title Pequot. The Pequot Indians are a tribe that used to dominate southeastern New England before the English colonists arrived. While no Pequot tribe members lived in Minnesota, they spoke an Algonquian language related to that of the local Chippewa, as listed by Father Barroga in his Chippewa dictionary, gave rise to the word Pequot.2. In a 1936 interview, Laurence Anderson, who moved to the town in the mid-1890sm gave the following explanation. "A daughter of 'Waubanaquot,' Chief of the White Earth Tribe, was named 'O-Pequot' and lived north of the town on the north end of Sibley Lake. She graciously allowed her dugout home to be used as a school and a church for the early settlers of the town. When she died, she was buried in the town cemetery."
