Rochester, Minnesota, is the county seat of Olmsted County and is located on both banks of the Zumbro River. It is internationally known as the home of the Mayo Clinic research facilities. It was founded in 1854 and was a major stagecoach stop between Saint Paul, Minnesot and Dubuque, Iowa. The arrival of the railroad in the 1860s brought more prosperity, and Dr. William Mayo became the examining surgeon for Civil War draftees.
