City of Brainerd »

Brainerd, a city located at the geographical center of the state of Minnesota, began life as a railroad town. The owner of the railroad at the time was John Gregory Smith. Rather than naming the new community Smithville or Smithton, the maiden name of his wife, Anne Eliza Brainerd Smith, was chosen as the moniker. Thus, in 1870, Brainerd was born. Today that humble little railroad town is a growing city; not only concerned with lumber and railroads but also a hub for tourism, a burgeoning service industry, and more.

Protect yourselves and your property against underground utility damage and liability. Find out where the underground utility lines might be buried before you dig. Anyone digging in Minnesota must call before digging. The person who is doing the work is responsible for calling GSOC. If the owner contracts with a professional excavator to do the excavation then the professional excavator is responsible for calling GSOC. You (the digger) will need to provide information about the work site when you call.
