BUFFALO city in sections 30 and 31 of Buffalo Township, the county seat, platted on December 27, 1856, incorporated on May 23, 1857, and as a village on November 22, 1881, and reincorporated on August 25, 1908, took its name, given also to the township, which was first settled in April 1855 and organized May 11, 1858, from their Buffalo Lake, "named by the Indian traders on account of the large numbers of buffalo fish found in its waters." For Kandiyohi County, also named from this species of fish, they are more fully noticed. The city was platted on land owned by Aurasa Ackley; the streets were named for the first settlers, the avenues for trees. The post office was established in 1856 with Ackley as postmaster.
