Here is a history page for Savage.

The Minnesota River was a large factor in the development of Savage. A small trading post was opened in 1852 at the Credit River and the Minnesota River. As more settlers came, Hamilton's Landing was established at the Minnesota River. The railroad came to Hamilton in October of 1865. The town was incorporated in 1892. Later, M.W. Savage moved to the area and built his home near Hamilton. He had a large stable there where his famous horse, Dan Patch, was kept. He promoted his horse and the area, bringing much publicity to the town. In 1904, the town was renamed to honor Mr. Savage. Dan Patch and M.W. Savage died within a day of each other after both having fallen ill on the same day, 4 July 1916.
