History & History Related Items

Sibley history:

Sibley was named after Henry Hastings Sibley, a general and the first Governor of Minnesota. When asked why they did not name the town after themselves, co-founder, Eddie Hagglund replied, ..I don't want anymore Hagglund anything.

In 1954, Eddie and Edythe Hagglund began the small town of Sibley. They were visiting Lake Ashtabula and noted how many people were there at the lake. They decided to start up a hamburger place. After purchasing land near the lake, they began with a dance hall they called Danceland where visitors could dance, play and roller skate. Other buildings followed, among them the restaurant and more businesses. The Sibley Trail Township denied them a liquor license in 1960, so not being ones to give up, they decided to incorporate the town and then issued themselves a license.

Most of the town was sold to private land holders during the 1970s, but the couple retained the core businesses in Sibley. Eddie died in 2001 but Edythe kept up the town and the businesses too. The remainder of the town under Edythe's control is up for sale by owner on May 5, 2007. Edythe will give up all but the Motel where she still does maid duties at 92 years of age.
