Meeker County
EDEN VALLEY, a railway village in the north edge of Manannah, platted in 1886, was euphoniously named by officers of the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (Soo Line). The city with Stearns County began as Pappelbusch (often spelled Popple Bush) in Manannah Township in 1877, a German name meaning "stand of popple trees," on a site two and one-half miles east of the present Eden Valley; it was incorporated as a village on April 25, 1894. August Loegering came to the site about 1880, bought a farm on the border of Stearns and Meeker Counties, opened a general store and a post office called Logering, 1884-93, the post office department misspelling his name. Loegering was born in 1857 in Waconia, later moved to Long Prairie, where he died in 1938. When the Minneapolis and Pacific Railroad built through sections 2 and 3 of the present city, all businesses moved there; the post office, begun as Eden Lake in Stearns County in 1872, was transferred to Eden Valley in 1887.
