The city of Plymouth can be traced back to its original inhabitants, the Dakota Indians, to 1500 AD. Medicine Lake, located in Plymouth, was named after the Dakota word Mdewakanton meaning Spirit of the Lake. The Dakota named the lake after a warrior who overturned his canoe and his body was never found. Plymouth incorporated as a village in 1955 and officially became a statutory city in 1974.
