History of Carlos
HISTORY OF CARLOS
In the late 1800’s, a few years after the Indian uprising, the first settlers homesteaded the land which is now the City of Carlos. Indians were living along the Long Prairie River and would often trade venison and bear meat for rutabagas, potatoes, or bread with the white man. Wild animals were in abundance. Wolf packs were often seen crossing the open fields. Small farm animals were often their prey.
