Excerpt from History of Emmet County and Dickinson County, Iowa, Vol. 1: A Record of Settlement, Organization Progress and Achievement

In various places on the hillsides of this county, especially by the margins of the larger streams, there are gravel deposits greatly unlike the ordinary gravel beds of Northern Iowa. N ow and then these deposits Widen out into plains of considerable size. The most notable formation of this character is seen directly south and west of the town Of Milford, in Okoboji Township. It is sandy, gravelly prairie, two or three miles in width, following the general course Of the Little Sioux River and extending to the southern boundary Of the county. About two miles southwest of Milford, after the Little Sioux River enters the plain, the erosion has left on the west side Of the valley a peculiar terrace, which is easily traced to the middle of Section 22. It has been given the name of Milford Terrace. Farther down, in Section 33, the bluffs of the drift approach much nearer to each other - not more than half a mile apart - and here the terrace may be seen on the west side Of the stream as a narrow shelf, lifted at least fifty feet above the level Of the present river. Similar terraces, though not so well defined, are to be seen at other places along the streams.
