HISTORY OF MAIDEN ROCK
Maiden Rock began as a logging settlement in 1854 and was named after a bluff four miles away. The Indian legend of the bluff, tells of a young Dakota Indian woman, Winona, who leaped to her death from the top of the most prominent bluff rather than marry the Indian Brave her father, Chief Red Wing, had chose for her. Today Maiden Rock is a small village of less than 120 people.
