History:  

ELBA Township, organized May 11, 1858, and its city in sections 3, 9, and 10, founded in 1856, bear the name of an island of Italy, famed for its rich deposits of iron ore. Napoleon was confined there in 1814-15. The city was incorporated as a village on March 9, 1894; the post office operated 1858-1960 and then served as a rural branch until 1965.
