A new exhibit at the History Museum of East Otter Tail County features photographs from the recent and not so recent history of New York Mills. 


The village was incorporated 125 years ago in 1884.  More than 10 years earlier a sawmill had been established in the area by a group from New York state, earning the town its name.  The Northern Pacific Railroad arrived in Otter Tail County in 1871 and one of the first shipments to the area was material for the sawmills.
