Plymouth’s early beginnings date back to the pre-Columbian period, somewhere between 1400 and 1500 A.D. The Dakota Natives were some of Plymouth’s first occupants, with a settlement at the north end of Medicine Lake. The first European settler, Antoine LeCounte, arrived in 1848, however, he didn’t settle on the land until 1852. He built Plymouth’s first cabin, which is now known as East Medicine Lake Boulevard.
