Scott County

SAVAGE, a city in the northeast corner of Glendale, incorporated as a village on November 7, 1892, and separated from the township on March 5, 1920, after being called Hamilton during many years, was renamed in honor of Marion Willis Savage, who here owned a horse-training farm, with a covered track for practice in racing. He was born near Akron, Ohio, March 26, 1859; removed to Minneapolis in 1886 and engaged in manufacture of stock foods; purchased the world's champion racing horse Dan Patch for $60,000 in 1902; constructed the Dan Patch Electric Line railway from Minneapolis to Savage, Northfield, and Faribault; died in Minneapolis, July 12, 1916, on the next day after his famous horse died. The Dan Patch line soon afterward became insolvent, but in July 1918 it was purchased by a reorganized company, being renamed theMinneapolis, Northfield and Southern Railroad.
