About Barry, MN

BARRY, a railway village in Toqua Township, was named in honor of the Barry brothers, homesteading farmers there, who came from Lowell, Mass. Incorporated as a village in 1900, it was located on the land claim of Edmond Barry, who with his brother William came in 1879 to the area following their brother James and William Nash. First called Lowell, the name was changed when the post office was established in 1881 with Miss Maria M. Barry as first postmaster in the Barry farmhouse. Her brother James owned the general store and lumber dealership; the blacksmith shop and general store were built in 1880, the coal and wood yard in 1885, and the elevator and bowling alley by the Barry brothers in 1891; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway in section 9.
