The township was divided into ELK RIVER NORTH Township: T. 33N, R. 26W; and ELK RIVER SOUTH Township: T. 32N, R. 26W. The city of Elk River in sections 33 and 34 of Elk River North Township was incorporated as a village on February 19, 1881, and reincorporated on February 6, 1911. The first post office, 1851-67, was established while in Benton County and transferred to Orono; the second post office was at Elk River Station, 1866-76, and became Elk River. The business district developed on the north side of the Great Northern Railway and Northern Pacific Railroad tracks. The county seat was first established at Humboldt, now Big Lake village, as before noted, but its offices were removed in 1867 to Elk River village, then known, in distinction from Orono, as "the Lower Town."
