History & History Related Items

Cuyuna was almost named Rabbit, after a local tribe, but was ultimately named Cuyuna. The name was created by his wife to honor the surveyor, Cuyler Adams, and for his dog, Una. The village was officially platted on November 14, 1908. Cuyuna was the first mining town on the Cuyuna Range. The first mine, near here, was originally an underground mine. It was converted to an open pit nearly 400 feet deep. The pit is now flooded as part of nearby Rabbit Lake.
