Dakota Heartstrings
My North Dakota Diary
Rolette County
'Rolette County was named in memory of Joseph Rolette of Pembina, prominent among his people and one of the oldest pioneers in this part of the territory. The greater part of the land being rolling prairie, is capable of profitable cultivation. The Turtle Mountains are covered with timber of a merchantable nature and several saw mills are in active operation. Rolla is the county seat.' Source: North Dakota Blue Book -- 1942
