Information about Hugo Minnesota

Hugo, MN has seen some impressive growth in population over the past decade. It has grown from 6,400 residents in year 2000, to over 10,500 in year 2007. Much of this growth has taken place in the rural areas of its 36.0 square mile footprint. Hugo was originally settled by French and French Canadian explorers. It was originally named “Oneka”, rooted from the Dakota word “onakan,” which means to “knock off” rice into a canoe. This was significant as the city’s two largest lakes, Oneka and Rice Lakes, were abundant in wild rice. Then in the early 1900s, Hugo established itself as a refueling station for the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad, and it was not until 1972 that Hugo was incorporated into a city.
