History:  

DORAN, a city in section 5 of Brandrup, was named by James J. Hill in honor of his friend Michael Doran of St. Paul, who was born in County Meath, Ireland, November 1, 1829, and died in St. Paul, February 20, 1915. He came to the United States in 1850 and in 1856 to Le Sueur County in this state, where he engaged in farming and banking; removed to St. Paul in 1877; was a state senator, 1871, 1875, 1876-79, 1883-85; and died in 1915. The city was incorporated as a village on July 8, 1907; the post office opened in 1892.
