Nestled in the western part of Fillmore County is a small town called Ostrander. Ostrander was platted in 1890 and named after William and Charles Ostrander, who gave to the railway company parts of the village site. William Ostrander was born in New York in 1819 and came to Minnesota in 1857, where he settled as a farmer. The post office moved to Ostrander from Hurdal in 1891. The city was incorporated as a village in 1918. It had a station of the Chicago Great Western Railroad and was the site of a low-grade iron mining operation during World War II and several years following. Ostrander, although small, is home to the Ostrander Farmer’s Co-op as well as the famous bar and grill, Susie’s Roadhouse. Ostrander welcomes you to the Bluff Country area and hopes you make Ostrander a stop on your map.
