Description
The state's largest natural body of water, Spirit Lake attracted early pioneers on the Iowa-Minnesota frontier. In 1857 more than 30 settlers were killed by a band of Sioux Indians in what became known as the Spirit Lake Massacre. The only surviving structure from the attack stands at Abbie Gardner State Historic Site in nearby Arnolds Park.
