Appleton, MN is a city in Swift County, MN. In 1868, on their way west the Addison Phelps family passed a pleasing area with water, trees, and prairie for farming. Instead of taking a chance further west they decided to take a claim at the mouth of the Pomme de Terre River. Other settlers followed, including two civil war veterans, A.W. Lanthop and his brother W.V. Lanthop. The Lanthop brothers were the first to take advantage of the waterpower available in the area. In 1872 they built a flour mill on the banks of the Pomme de Terre. The W.J. Jennison Flour Mill, a descendent of the Lanthop Flour Mill ran on the banks of the Pomme de Terre until late 1960’s.
As the area began to fill with settlers mostly Eastern Americans, Germans, and Scandinavians, a few of the men met and decided to organize and plot out a township call Phelps, after Addison Phelps. Phelps later requested the town’s name be changed to Appleton, in honor of the city he grew up in, Appleton, WI. On September 4, 1872 the township of Appleton was formed. A petition was sent to the state Senate and the House of State Legislature on December 25, 1880 asking for the formation of the Village of Appleton. The assessor reported the population at the time was 633. In the 2010 census the population was reported to be 1,412.
Thielke, Miles, Behl, Schlieman, Sorenson….the list goes on. Appleton will never forget its fallen war heroes. On May 21, 1947 Appleton renamed its streets in honor of the World War II soldiers who gave their lives. Since then other war heroes from the Korean, Vietnam & Iraq wars have been added. Appleton is the only town in the country with all of its streets and avenues named after fallen war heroes.
