History:  

BLOMKEST, a city in Roseland Township, section 14, incorporated as a village April 7, 1952; it was platted in October 1926 and established on the Luce Line (Minnesota Western Railroad) as Kester in honor of C. E. Kester, then mayor of Hutchinson; however, confusion with a town called Kiester in Faribault County resulted in the name Kesterville, 1928-1943; that name, while used, was still not satisfactory, and when its post office began in 1928, it was called Blomkest, a name combining Kester with Blomquist, honoring Ole Blomquist (known as Blom Olof Anderson in his native Sweden), who was one of the early settlers of the community. The village had a station of the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad.
