History

Organization of Little Rock Township was approved by the Nobles County Board on September 3, 1872. On Joseph Nicollet's original 1842 map of the region, the Blue Mound near present-day Luverne is simply designated as The Rock. The river that flows near it was known by the Indians as Inyan Reakah, or River of the Rock. We know this as the Rock River. Little Rock Township gets its name from the Little Rock River that flows through the township and is one of the major tributaries of the Rock River.[3]
