HistoryThe exact date of Ralston Crossing Stage Stop is not known. When the dwelling was razed in the 1970s, the inside walls were insulated with Mankato, Minneapolis newspapers, dated 1856 for the front of the building, and 1861 for the addition. The stage stop was so named because it was the easiest crossing over Ralston Creek to the gold mining regions in the mountains.
