History:  

CLIMAX, a city in sections 29 and 30 of Vineland, is named with an ancient Greek word meaning "a ladder or a stairway," hence the highest point attained in an oration or in any series of endeavors, chosen here from its use in an advertisement of "Climax Tobacco." The city was incorporated as a village on August 18, 1897; it was first located one and a half miles southwest of the present site on the Steenerson farm, with a general store, a post office, a flour mill, a bank, a harness shop, and a doctor^veterinarian; when the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba Railroad came in 1896, the village moved to the present site, adding a depot, three elevators, a roller mill, a lumberyard, and a stockyard. The post office operated first as Meos, 1881-88, then as Climax, 1888-91, and was reestablished in 1894.
