Description
Hutchinson was founded in 1855 by brothers Asa, Judson and John Hutchinson. Incorporated in 1881, the city's charter reflected the progressive thinking of its founding family by supporting abolition, temperance and women's suffrage. During the Civil War a Sioux uprising began in Hutchinson under the command of Chief Little Crow. The chief was subsequently killed by a local farmer, Nathan Lamson; a statue of Little Crow stands by the dam along Main Street.
The 63-mile Luce Line State Trail, running alongside the Crow River, is used throughout the year by bikers, hikers, skiers and snowmobilers.
