The Rapidan Dam was constructed in 1910-1911 by the Ambersen Hydraulic Construction Company of Boston contracted by the consumer’s Power Company of Chicago. The Dam was built to service Blue Earth County and surrounding southern Minnesota residents with “cheap power”, as stated in The Daily Review in March 1911. The dam’s construction was an engineering and construction marvel for southern Minnesota and is presented in this book as chronicled by local newspapers and photographers.
