Pequot Lakes, Minnesota is in the Brainerd Lakes Area of Crow Wing County. The city includes several lakes, including Rice Lake, West Twin Lake, East Twin Lake, Lund Lake, Cloverleaf Lake, and other smaller bodies of water. Other lakes are just outside the city limits, including Lake Sibley, Upper Cullen Lake, Middle Cullen Lake, Lower Cullen Lake, Lake Edna, Mayo Lake, Upper Hay Lake, and Island Lake. Minnesota Highway 371 is the main route through the city, although other routes include County Roads 11, 16, 17, 29, and 112. Nearby communities include Breezy Point, Jenkins, Lake Hubert, Lake Shore, and Nisswa. A post office was established at Pequot Lakes in 1896, and the townsite was platted by Walter and Flora Brown in 1900. Pequot Lakes had a station of the Northern Pacific Railroad. The cities once named Sibley and Frogtown were renamed as Pequot, named for an Algonquian Indian tribe from eastern Connecticut, where a postal official once lived, because there was already a town named Sibley in southwestern Minnesota. However, the area surrounding the former village of Sibley continued to be named Sibley Township until the entirety of the township was annexed by the city of Pequot Lakes in 2002, increasing its population by more than 125 percent.
