In the late 18th century, John Rogers made a tiny transaction. Rogers sold the Great Northern Railroad 1 acre of his land for a meager 1 dollar. The railroad quickly built a depot on the land, which immediately put Rogers on the economic map. The township was considered a hub of industry in the northwest, with the railroad carrying the area’s vast amount of oak, elm, basswood, ash and maple timber around the region. Over the next few decades, the trees were cleared out and replaced with farmland, and Rogers grew slowly. However, in the 1970s, the powerhouse Highway I94 was built, which attracted new businesses like Graco, CDI and Reinhart FoodService to town. Growth continued at a rapid rate, and the population rose 139.6% from 2000-2010 alone! Recently, the population jumped another 22% with the annexation of Minnesota’s last township, Hassan.
