History:  

BERTHA Township, organized January 4, 1878, and city, platted in August 1891 and incorporated on July 16, 1897, commemorate Bertha Ristau, the first white woman settler there and wife of John C. Ristau, postmaster, who established the post office in 1880 in his log cabin store. The city developed following the arrival of the railroad, and three blocks were platted on August 25, 1891, by Francis M. and Louisa Riggs.
