History:  

ECHO Township, first settled in 1869, was organized March 31, 1874, being then named Empire, which was changed in the next month to Rose, "and on July 17, 1874, the name Echo was bestowed upon it. . . . The difficulties encountered in selecting a name not borne by some other township suggested the final name. This was one case where echo answered" (history of the county, 1914, p. 95). The city in sections 3 and 4, bearing the township name, was founded in August 1884 and was incorporated as a village on May 12, 1893. The city was platted on 26 blocks of land owned by the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad, but in 1889 the railroad decided that the original plat was too large and vacated all but nine blocks. The first post office, 1879, was located two miles south of the village on Samuel Mather's farm until he built a store in the village in 1885 and moved the post office there.
